STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut's Hasheem Thabeet has decided to enter the NBA draft.
The 7-foot-3 center said Tuesday that he made the decision after speaking to family, friends and coach Jim Calhoun.
In a statement released by the school, Calhoun called Thabeet ``one of the most dominant defensive players in the history of college basketball,'' and said he believes he is ready to make the move to the NBA.
Thabeet, a two-time defensive player of the year in the Big East, averaged 13.6 points, 10.8 rebounds and 4.2 blocked shots per game in helping the Huskies to a 31-5 record and a Final Four berth.
