LOS ANGELES (AP) - Shabazz Muhammad is one-and-done at UCLA.
The Pac-12 co-freshman of the year on Tuesday announced the news that had been expected since he arrived in Westwood: he's leaving to enter the NBA draft.
Muhammad was the Bruins' leading scorer with 17.9 points per game. The 6-foot-6 guard from Las Vegas was named to the all-league first team and helped UCLA to a 25-10 record, the Pac-12 regular-season title and a runner-up finish in the league tournament. The Bruins lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
Muhammad says he's thankful for what he describes as ``the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity'' to play at UCLA. He says he's always dreamed of playing in the NBA and that he believes the time is right for him to move on.
The NBA draft is June 27.
