Canadian guard Jamal Murray headed to Kentucky

TORONTO (AP) – Canadian guard Jamal Murray is headed to University of Kentucky.

Murray announced his decision Wednesday, selecting the Wildcats over Oregon.

“Beyond blessed to announce that I will be attending the University of Kentucky,” Murray said on Twitter.

The 6-foot-5 Murray was the most valuable player in the Nike Hoop Summit All-Star game, leading the world team with 30 points in a 103-101 victory over the United States Selects.

Murray played for Canada in the 2014 FIBA under-17 world championships.
