BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Victor Oladipo, the blasting cap of the Indiana University men's basketball team will forgo his senior season and enter the 2013 NBA Draft.
Oladipo announced his intentions at a press conference Thursday at Assembly Hall.
"It's truly a dream come true," Oladipo says. "To actually achieve my goal is an amazing feeling. I just got to keep working, and making sure my hard work and my work ethic--it stays that way and becomes a way of life."
Oladipo garnered a host of All-Big Ten Conference and All-America honors for his play this year. The 6'5" guard from Upper Marlboro, Md., averaged 13.6 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this past season.
The Hoosiers won their first Big Ten Championship since 1993, and claimed a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.
Oladipo, who will graduate from IU in May, is a likely lottery pick in the NBA Draft. Teammate Cody Zeller could make a decision on his future later this week.
