Kansas is sending in its closer for Lance Stephenson.
Kansas assistant Danny Manning, who led the Jayhawks to the NCAA championship in 1988, is recruiting the 6-foot-5 Stephenson hard. He attended a Lincoln practice last week, according to a source.
Kansas figures that if Stephenson wants to develop into an NBA player at a high-level program, who better to teach him than Manning, the No. 1 overall pick by the L.A. Clippers in the 1988 NBA Draft?
