The worst possible news came to life for Wright State Basketball over the weekend. Leading scoroer Julius Mayes had announced he was leaving school, but after selecting Kentucky recently, it became more real. This is the story from the Dayton Daily News...David Jablonski
Julius Mays, the Wright State basketball team’s leading scorer last season, will play for the University of Kentucky next season, Clark Goodman of CBSSports.com reported Sunday night.
Speaking to CatsIllustrated.com, Mays said, “”It’s the best of the best. I want to compete with the best of the best. Growing up as a kid that’s all I’ve wanted to do. Having an opportunity to do that and play for Coach Cal, is really an opportunity of a lifetime and is really hard to pass up.”
Mays is a fifth-year senior who won’t have to sit out a year if he graduates in June as planned. He sat out his first season at Wright State after transferring from NC State and played last season.
According to the report, he will pursue a master’s degree in sports leadership at UK.
