LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Kansas stars Brandon Rush and Darrell Arthur declared themselves eligible for the NBA draft Thursday, less than two weeks after leading the Jayhawks to their second national title in 20 years.
Rush was set to enter the NBA draft a year ago, but injured his knee during a pickup game and withdrew his name. The 6-foot-6 junior guard averaged a team-best 13.3 points this season, helping Kansas to its third national championship overall.
By declaring for the draft a second time, Rush loses his college eligibility.
Arthur has not signed with an agent, meaning he can return to Kansas. The 6-9 sophomore forward tied Mario Chalmers as Kansas' second-leading scorer this season at 12.8 points per game and was second with 6.2 rebounds.
