Former Kansas University basketball point guard Jeff Hawkins will play professional basketball in Germany next season.
The 5-foot-11 native of Kansas City, Kan., who will leave in two weeks, will be out of the country for nine months.
“It’s a great opportunity for Jeff,” KU coach Bill Self said. “They sent him a contract. He called today and is excited about getting the opportunity to go over there and play. I’m happy for him.”
