UCLA point guard Darren Collison said Monday night that he would have an announcement about his future basketball plans Wednesday.
Collison's mother, June Griffith-Collison, submitted her resignation Monday as director of San Bernardino County's Regional Medical Center and in a news release said one reason was to help her son with his decision making. However, she said Monday night her resignation should not be taken as a sign that Collison would leave school for the NBA.
"Not at all," she said. "It's just the job has gotten more demanding and this time is short to spend with my son. I even missed an NCAA game [UCLA against Pittsburgh] because I couldn't get away. Those moments are precious."
After an eye-opening sophomore season where Collison stepped in for Jordan Farmar and piloted the Bruins to a second consecutive Final Four appearance while averaging 13.3 points a game and 5.4 assists, Collison hit the NBA's radar.
