Jayhawks' Greene hospitalized after practice

AP - Sports

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas freshman Brannen Greene was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for evaluation and then was released Thursday after taking a blow to his lower abdomen during practice.

Jayhawks coach Bill Self said that he anticipates Greene will play when No. 5 Kansas opens its regular season against Louisiana-Monroe on Friday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

Greene is part of one of the most heralded recruiting classes in Self's time in Lawrence. The 6-foot-7 guard was a four-star recruit out of Tifton, Ga., and has earned Self's praise following his first two exhibition games for his rangy play and shooting touch.

Greene had six points in 12 minutes in a win over Fort Hays State on Tuesday night.
