Kansas Jayhawks freshman Josh Jackson has been suspended for the team's Big 12 Tournament opener on Thursday, March 9th due to a traffic incident that occurred on February 2nd.

Jackson, a potential Top 3 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, reportedly backed into an unattended vehicle and left without leaving his contact info which resulted in him receiving citations for duty upon striking an unattended vehicle, inattentive driving and improper backing.

Head coach Bill Self released the following statement regarding Jackson's suspension, per ESPN,

"Although Josh has acknowledged his responsibility and has handled it himself, he didn't tell me about it until Monday," Self said in a release. "He should have left his contact information at the time and notified us immediately."

Jackson is averaging 16.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per game for the Jayhawks, who are the #1 seed in the Big 12 tournament and await the winner of today's TCU vs Oklahoma game.
