LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky has announced that Archie Goodwin is leaving early for the NBA while Willie Cauley-Stein and Kyle Wiltjer will be back next season.

Coach John Calipari announced their decisions Monday.

Calipari says he wanted Goodwin to return for his sophomore season but "I fully support him choosing to pursue his dreams."

Goodwin averaged a team-best 14 points for the Wildcats. They followed up their 2012 national championship by losing to Robert Morris in the first round of the NIT.

Cauley-Stein averaged 8.3 points and 6.3 rebounds as a freshman while blocking 59 shots. Wiltjer was the Southeastern Conference's sixth man of the year after averaging 10.4 points as a sophomore and making 90 career 3-pointers.

The school says it will announce other players' decisions at a later date.
