RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Wake Forest star Jeff Teague is staying in the NBA draft, ending his college career after just two seasons.
Teague announced in April he would declare for the draft but not hire an agent, allowing him the option of returning to school for his junior year. But coach Dino Gaudio said Teague told him shortly before Monday afternoon's deadline to withdraw that he would stay in the draft.
Teague is the second sophomore to declare from the Demon Deacons, joining forward James Johnson.
Teague led the Demon Deacons (24-7) at about 19 points per game,
helping them earn a No. 1 ranking in January before being upset in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Teague was a second-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick.
The draft is June 25.
