Michigan sophomore point guard Trey Burke says he’ll take his time before deciding whether to leave for the NBA, but several other college standouts announced their intentions Tuesday.
Ben McLemore, Kansas’ talented freshman guard, wasted little time in declaring for the NBA Draft, the day after the college season ended.
Indiana All-American Victor Oladipo also announced he was giving up his senior season to enter the draft, along with New Mexico junior Tony Snell.
The NBA Draft is June 27.
DUKE: Ryan Kelly will be out 12 weeks after having surgery on his injured right foot on Tuesday.
The Duke-issued timeline would keep the 6-foot-11 senior out until early July.
Kelly missed 13 games after hurting the foot Jan. 8 against Clemson.
ROBERT MORRIS: An internal investigation into former basketball coach Mike Rice found no evidence of the “coaches against player” brawls alleged by an ex-Rutgers employee, though one former Colonial contacted by the school claims Rice used anti-gay slurs on several occasions and engaged in a shoving match with a player during halftime of a game.
Rice coached at the suburban Pittsburgh school from 2007-10 before taking the job at Rutgers, who fired Rice last week after video of the coach physically and emotionally abusing players became public.
