MILWAUKEE — Just as Juwan Howard went back to school after leaving Michigan early, Washington Wizards forward Jared Jeffries, who left Indiana after his sophomore season, says he wants to finish his education.

“I was just thinking about it the other day,” Jeffries said. “My mom still reminds about finishing all the time. She’s always emphasizing how much I need to get my degree.”

Jeffries, 60 credits shy of a degree in communications, says he already has talked to some people back at Indiana about completing his schoolwork. He’s talked about this to teammate Jerry Stackhouse, who finished his degree work at North Carolina after leaving school early, and said Stackhouse encouraged him to finish.

“I’m hoping to take some courses this summer,” Jeffries said. “I want to do it for myself. But my mother’s not going to let me forget it.
