STORRS, Conn. (AP) - National champion UConn is losing one junior star to the NBA draft, while another has announced he is staying with the Huskies.
The school announced Friday that forward DeAndre Daniels has filed the necessary paperwork with the NBA and will forgo his senior season of eligibility.
The school says guard Ryan Boatright will return next season.
Daniels says he discussed the decision with his family and they all agreed it was time to turn pro. ''To go out on top like we did makes it even better,'' the 6-foot-9 junior said in a statement.
Daniels averaged 13.1 points and 6.0 rebounds, but 16.0 points and 7.2 rebounds during the Huskies' NCAA tournament run.
Boatright averaged 12.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists.
