Former Kansas University basketball point guard Jeff Hawkins will play professional basketball in Germany next season.

Its 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. Im happy for him.
