Mack to remain in NBA draft

May 9, 2011

Shelvin Mack, a junior guard who this year helped lead Butler University to its second straight appearance in the NCAA championship basketball game, is heading for the NBA. Mack said Sunday that he will leave his name available for the June 23 draft, making him ineligible to play another year for Butler. He declared himself eligible for the draft last month but did not hire an agent, which gave him the option of withdrawing his name and retaining his college eligibility until Sunday’s deadline. Mack averaged 20.3 points per game during the NCAA tournament and 16 points in the regular season.
