JOSHUA C. SELBY Shooting Guard/Point Guard University of Kansas Jayhawks #32 6:01.0-183 Baltimore, Maryland Lake Clifton High School DeMatha High School The John Carroll School OVERVIEW Regarded as the elite incoming player in college basketball prior to the 2010-11 season, to say that things did not go according to plan for Selby would be a drastic understatement. When he recently announced that he would forgo his last three years of college eligibility and enter the NBA draft, it was not a popular decision by the 20-year-old.

Like many 12 year olds, C.J. Fair dabbled in many different sports. He played some baseball, a little football and anything his friends were into at the time. Then he started "growing like a weed," as his father Carl put it, and Carl asked him to pick one sport. C.J. chose basketball, and he and his friends - Antonio and Will Barton , Josh Selby and Nick Faust - began dominating anyone who stood in their way. They formed a super team, as the lanky lefty C.J. continued to sharpen his game at the John Eager Howard Community Center and around Baltimore playgrounds.

Josh Selby has played in many different cities in the past year, but he is back in a comfortable atmosphere - at least for a little while. After a disappointing 2012-13 NBA season in which the Lake Clifton graduate bounced around with five teams in five months, Selby is returning home to Baltimore for several days to run a charity event. On Saturday, Selby is hosting the Walk-Away Campaign at Margaret Brent Elementary-Middle, an event to help combat youth violence and make Baltimore more safe.

Josh Selby wasn't concerned about a potential NBA lockout. He wasn't concerned about the underwhelming, injury-plagued year he had at Kansas. The former Lake Clifton star was dead set on going to the NBA, and he isn't overly concerned with where he lands in the draft so long as he gets selected. "I have a motto — it's not really where you start, it's where you finish," Selby said at the NBA pre-draft camp Thursday. But with a looming lockout inserting uncertainty into this year's draft, where you start is pretty important too, given that first-round contracts provide guaranteed money.

Josh Selby emerges from the Stevenson University locker room, his hot pink sneakers with silver trim sparkling as he takes the floor. The Lake Clifton graduate's eye-catching shoes - which he says he wears to raise breast cancer awareness - quickly become an afterthought once play begins and his flashy game is on display. In the first quarter of Ravens wide receiver LaQuan Williams' charity basketball game late last month, Selby finds himself stuck in a corner beyond the arc, tightly guarded.

Casual basketball followers in Baltimore City might not remember Daishon Knight . The 6-foot-1, 188-pound combo guard didn't play for Lake Clifton during his senior year of high school in 2010, and he never suited up for a local AAU team either. But starting this fall, hoops fans from this area will get a chance to follow Knight's progress on a bigger stage when he takes the court for Illinois State. Knight, a West Baltimore native, signed his letter of intent to play for the Redbirds last week.

More than a couple of Leron Fisher 's close friends openly questioned his decision-making process one year ago. Why, some of them asked, would the former Lake Clifton standout pass up a Division II basketball scholarship in favor of junior college? “I knew I could play Division I,” Fisher said Monday. “I knew if I went to junior college for one year and had the opportunity to play my best, I'd come away with a Division I scholarship.” Fisher's JUCO gamble paid off last weekend when Longwood offered him a full ride during his official visit to the Big South school in Farmville, Va. The former Lakers star accepted the Lancers' offer before heading home.
