  • Selby Still Mulling College Options

    NEW YORK — While Doron Lamb says he has already selected a college, Josh Selby maintains he’s still weighing his options with about 48 hours to go until Saturday’s announcement at Madison Square Garden.

    “I’m still deciding right now,” the 6-foot-2 Selby told SNY.tv Thursday at the Jordan Brand Classic practice at Sports Club/LA in Manhattan. “[Friday] when I have free time to think about my choices, I should know by [Friday] night, though.”

    The No. 2 point guard in the Class of 2010 according to Rivals, Selby said his final list includes UConn, Kentucky, Arizona, Tennessee and Kansas.

    Selby said his mother, Maeshon Witherspoon, already has a strong opinion on the matter.

    “I think my mom knows where she wants me to go, so she knows. But I just want to sit down by myself and think about it,” he said.

    Point guard Brandon Knight of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Pine Crest announced Wednesday that he will attend Kentucky, but Selby said that decision would not necessarily impact his.

    “I didn’t wait for him to commit,” Selby said. “I was going to commit here. I wasn’t waiting for Brandon to commit, Cory [Joseph] to commit because it don’t have [any] effect on which school I want to go to.”
