UConn star forward Gay heading to NBA
By Wire services
Published April 18, 2006
STORRS, Conn. - Connecticut forward Rudy Gay said Monday he will forgo his final two years of eligibility and enter the NBA draft.
The 6-foot-9 Gay averaged a team-best 15.2 points this season and is projected to be a lottery pick. He also averaged 6.4 rebounds and had a team-high 56 steals for the Huskies (30-4).
"It was a tough decision. It took a lot of time, a lot of thought," Gay said. "When you sign on the dotted line to go to college, you plan on being there four years. When I came to UConn I didn't think about any time period or any time when I should leave."
LSU: Freshman forward Tyrus Thomas declared for the NBA draft, but sophomore teammate and SEC player of the year Glen Davis said he is coming back.
FSU BACK TEARS ACL: Florida State backup tailback Russell Ball tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee late in the Seminoles' spring game April 8 and will have surgery scheduled after final exams, the school announced. ACL surgery typically requires six to nine months of rehabilitation, which could mean a lost season for Ball, a redshirt freshman.
ARKANSAS: A three-year NCAA probation that cost the school two scholarships a year ended. The school will be able to award the maximum 85 for the first time since 2000-01.
IOWA ST.: Linebacker Matt Robertson will not be allowed to play his senior season with the Cyclones after he tested positive for a banned nutritional supplement.
OHIO ST.: Walk-on punter/receiver Tyson Gentry, who seriously injured his neck during practice last week, had a second surgery.
GOLF: UCF shot 8-over 294 to move into a tie for fourth after two days of the C-USA women's tournament.
SOFTBALL: UCF sophomore Allison Kime, a former Bloomingdale High and Hillsborough Community College standout, was named Conference USA pitcher of the week after going 2-1 and allowing five runs in 21 innings.
TENNIS: The state's top junior player, Jean Yves Aubone, signed with FSU, men's coach Dwayne Hultquist said.
OBITUARY: Tom Mickle, executive director of Florida Citrus Sports and a former ACC associate commissioner, died in Orlando. He was 55.
