RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State sophomore T.J. Warren is entering the NBA draft.
In a statement released by the school Tuesday, the Atlantic Coast Conference's player of the year said he had ''a fun ride'' but was ready for the NBA.
The 6-foot-8 forward led the league at 24.9 points per game while shooting a league-best 52.5 percent.
Behind Warren, the Wolfpack went from being picked to finish 10th in the ACC to reaching the NCAA tournament for the third straight year.
Warren closed the regular season with 41 points at Pittsburgh and a career-high 42 points against Boston College, making him the first ACC player since December 1990 and the first N.C. State player since program great David Thompson in 1974-75 to go for 40 in consecutive games.
