LOS ANGELES (AP) -UCLA guard Jrue Holiday plans to enter the NBA draft, but he won't hire an agent and is leaving open the option of returning for his sophomore season.
Holiday averaged 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.6 steals starting all 35 games for the Bruins this season. He averaged 27.1 minutes and was on the Pac-10 all-freshman team.
Holiday announced the move Thursday on campus, saying he spoke to his parents and Coach Ben Howland before deciding it was in his best interest ``to test the waters.''
Howland endorsed Holiday's decision, saying, ``There's no question that Jrue is a first-round NBA draft pick.''
The Bruins finished 26-9, losing to Villanova in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
