ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico guard Tony Snell will forgo his senior season to enter the NBA draft.
The 21-year-old Snell made the announcement at a Monday news conference on the school's Albuquerque campus.
The 6-foot-7 Snell says "in my heart, I feel like it's a good decision to leave now."
Newly hired Lobos coach Craig Neal was at Snell's side when he announced his plan to turn pro.
Snell averaged 12.5 points per game this past season and hit a team-high 64 3-pointers. He was the Mountain West tournament MVP.
