Michigan's Hardaway Jr. will enter NBA draft
Michigan has lost a second star player from its Final Four team to the NBA draft.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan has lost a second star player from its Final Four team to the NBA draft.
"I made my decision yesterday," Hardaway said. "It felt good, felt better about myself and it was good to get it off my shoulders."
Hardaway Jr. scored 1,532 points, good enough for 18th in career scoring at Michigan. His 202 made 3-pointers are sixth in school history and his 440 career rebounds place him 50th in school history.
A first-team all-Big Ten selection, Hardaway averaged 14.5 points and 4.7 rebounds last season for Michigan.
ESPN's Chad Ford said Wednesday in his chat he thinks Hardaway would be a second-round selection. He is the No. 15 shooting guard in ESPN's draft rankings and the No. 55 player overall.
"It was just tough, trying to get as much information as possible and making the right decision," Hardaway said. "Going to the NBA is the right decision for me."
