Texas guard Myck Kabongo says he's ready to return to the court after a 23-game NCAA suspension.
Coach Rick Barnes has said Kabongo will start for the struggling Longhorns (10-13, 2-8 Big 12) on Wednesday night against Iowa State.
Kabongo was suspended for accepting impermissible benefits in relation to a trip to Cleveland in 2012, and providing false statements during a university investigation into the infractions.
In a statement released by Texas, Kabongo says he didn't intend to break any rules and should have cooperated when first asked about the trip. Kabongo says he ``should have been upfront with UT about everything.''
The Longhorns are struggling through their worst season in 15 years under Barnes.
