DeAndre Daniels, a 6-foot-9 junior forward from Connecticut, announced Friday that he will forgo his senior season and enter the NBA draft while twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison of Kentucky said they have decided to play another year in college. Daniels, who starred at Woodland Hills Taft High, had stellar performances during the Huskies' run to the NCAA tournament title, averaging 16.7 points and 7.4 rebounds a game while shooting 48% from the field. UConn announced that junior guard Ryan Boatright, who averaged 12.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists last season, would return for his senior season.

Randle denied recent reports that he would leave Kentucky for the NBA. [I don't know] who reported what but I haven't made up my mind about the draft yet. Haven't even talked to my family about it.

The NCAA tournament concluded Monday night with the Connecticut Huskies winning the national title, defeating the Kentucky Wildcats, 60-53. Senior Shabazz Napier led all scorers with 22 points in 39 minutes. With a strong tournament, Napier should have improved his NBA draft stock after picking up his second NCAA title in four years. Originally, Napier was projected as a second-round pick, but LeBron James suggested otherwise Monday. No way u take another PG in the lottery before Napier.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Last week, Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison told a crowd of reporters that nobody could tell his twin brother Aaron that he wasn't the best. Aaron Harrison proved it again. For a third consecutive NCAA tournament game, the guard from Texas hit a game-deciding three-pointer. It was his only long-range attempt of the game. Only six seconds remained. He had taken a pass from his brother standing near the sideline about 27 feet from the basket. But the shot went in. Of course it did. Kentucky is advancing to the NCAA championship game after defeating Wisconsin, 74-73, in the Final Four on Saturday night.

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Final Four has grown so large they had to move it from Planet Earth to Jerry World. It actually makes sense a stadium nicknamed "The Billion Dollar Play Pen" should host college basketball's billion-dollar end games. It makes less sense that everyone except the players seems to be cashing in. This being Texas, of course, one host city was not enough to handle the event, as the NCAA granted this bid to the wide-open-spaces sweep of "North Texas. " That means Amarillo, technically, got a Final Four in the modern era before Los Angeles.

"Better, but he looks a little loopy," Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said Sunday morning after the team's shoot-around. "I don't think he'll be able to play today. " Xavier Henry will miss his second game since his right knee flared up. He missed about two months earlier this season because of a bone bruise and cartilage abnormality in the knee.
