CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -Virginia guard Sean Singletary will declare for the NBA draft but is not planning to hire an agent, leaving open the possibility of a return for his senior season.
The 6-foot junior, an all-Atlantic Coast Conference player, maintained repeatedly this season he would be back for his senior year.
``I want to continue to consider all of my options and learn as much as I can about the process,'' he said in a statement released by the school.
There is a Sunday deadline for applying for early entry to the June 28 draft. Players who don't hire an agent can withdraw their names until June 18 and return to school.
``I understand Sean's interest in learning more about the process and feel this step will enable him to gather a great deal of information,'' Virginia coach Dave Leitao said.
A co-captain the last two seasons, Singletary averaged 19 points, 4.7 assists and 4.6 rebounds this season. He also made 87.2 percent of his free throws.
Virginia finished 21-11, shared the ACC regular-season title with North Carolina and reached the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2001, advancing to the second round.
