LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas has scheduled a news conference Monday at Allen Fieldhouse with freshman star Andrew Wiggins and coach Bill Self.

Wiggins has already said he plans to enter the NBA draft, though Kansas would not say what the news will be.

The 6-foot-8 Wiggins led Kansas in scoring at 17.1 points per game and averaged 5.9 rebounds. The Canadian was the Big 12 freshman of the year and a first-team all-conference selection.

Wiggins is expected to be one of the top picks in the draft.

Fellow Kansas freshman Wayne Selden Jr. has already announced he will return to school. Freshman center Joel Embiid, who also has a chance to be the top overall pick, has yet to announce his plans.
