KU's Taylor, Marcus Morris will not start Wednesday

Kansas coach Bill Self said Tuesday night that junior leaders Marcus Morris and Tyshawn Taylor will not start on Wednesday night against Texas-Arlington.

Morris is not starting as punishment for his flagrant foul and ejection last week at California, while Taylor will come off the bench because he has been unable to return from his visit to New Jersey for the Christmas holidays because of inclement weather. Self said Taylor is expected to arrive in Lawrence at some point Tuesday night.

KU will start guards Elijah Johnson, Josh Selby, Tyrel Reed and forwards Markieff Morris and Thomas Robinson.
