 LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Kansas freshman forward Markieff Morris agreed to perform 20 hours of community service for shooting a Wisconsin woman with plastic BBs in August in a university dorm courtyard.
The 18-year-old Philadelphia player had been charged with battery and will not have to appear in court Friday.
``I've learned a lesson from this, and I apologize for any embarrassment this caused KU and the basketball program,'' Morris said in a statement. ``I'm going to do my community service so I can conclude this matter and concentrate on academics and the rest of the basketball season.''
Campus police said shots were fired from a room in Jayhawker Towers. The 47-year-old woman was hit in the arm and slightly injured. Officers seized a 3-foot-long black Airsoft rifle and medium-sized plastic bag of BBs.
``We've talked about this a lot,'' said Bill Self, coach of defending champion Kansas. ``And I've told Markieff and our guys that obviously they have to make better decisions and be much wiser in their judgment.''
