Two More NCAA Standouts Declare for NBA Draft

Indiana sophomore center Cody Zeller is heading to the NBA. The announcement was made on a family business website Wednesday, shortly before a scheduled news conference. Zeller is the second Hoosiers star to leave school early. On Tuesday, junior swingman Victor Oladipo announced he, too, was entering the NBA draft. Neither decision was a surprise because both are projected to be lottery picks in June. Zeller, a 7-footer, could have left school last year but decided to return for one more shot at a national championship. He led the Hoosiers in scoring (16.5 points) and rebounding (8.1), was a second-team All-American and is projected to be a top 10 pick in June's draft. Zeller's older two brothers, Luke and Tyler, also played in the NBA this season. In a related story, Missouri junior Paul Pressey says he will forego his senior season to enter the NBA draft. The 5-11 guard averaged just under 12 points a game for the Tigers. His father, also named Paul, played for a number of years in the NBA.
