SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Gonzaga forward Kelly Olynyk will skip his senior season to enter the NBA draft.
The All-American announced his decision on Friday.
Olynyk, a native of Canada, became an All-American during a junior season that saw the Bulldogs reach the No. 1 spot in The Associated Press poll for the first time in school history. The 7-footer averaged 17.8 points and 7.3 rebounds while shooting 63 percent from the field.
Olynyk was a reserve player his first two seasons, then red-shirted after his sophomore year to work on his body and his game. The 22-year-old Olynyk had a breakout year that ended when Gonzaga was upset by Wichita State in the third round of the NCAA tournament.
