RENO, Nev. (AP) -Nevada point guard Ramon Sessions will forgo his senior season with the Wolf Pack and remain in the NBA draft.
Sessions announced in April his intention to make himself available for the June 28 draft but didn't hire an agent, meaning he could have reconsidered and returned to Nevada. He said in a statement Friday he would stay in the draft.
``Playing at Nevada has opened many doors for me, including this one, and it is now time for me to pursue my dream,'' said Sessions, a second team all-Western Athletic Conference selection this season.
He averaged 12.3 points per game and led the team in assists for the third consecutive season, averaging 4.7, which was second in the WAC. He was the WAC's freshman of the year in 2004-05 but was slowed by a hip injury his sophomore year.
The Wolf Pack won the WAC regular-season championship and played in the NCAA tournament in each Sessions' three seasons.
Marcellus Kemp, another Nevada guard with a year of eligibility remaining, also announced his intention to enter the draft without an agent. He had not made a final decision about staying in the draft as of Friday, school spokeswoman Rhonda Lundin said.
Underclassmen who have not hired agents have until 5 p.m. on Monday to remove their name from the draft.
