LAWRENCE, Kan. - University of Kansas men's basketball coach Bill Self announced that junior guard Brandon Rush underwent successful surgery Friday on his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

"The surgery couldn't have gone any better. The doctors couldn't be more pleased," Self said. "Brandon is well on the road to recovery. His rehab will start immediately."

Rush is a two-time All-Big 12 first team honoree and was a John Wooden Award All-America selection and a Naismith Award finalist in 2006-07. He has led the Jayhawks in scoring each of his first two seasons, including 13.8 points per game and was second in rebounding at 5.6 per contest this year. He also hit a team-best 50 three-pointers on the season.
