Miami (Fla.) guard Larkin forgoes final two years of college, enters NBA draft
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami (Fla.) guard Shane Larkin says he will forgo his final two years of college eligibility and enter the NBA draft.
Larkin averaged 14.5 points and 4.6 assists this season for the Hurricanes, who won 29 games, climbed as high as No. 2 in The Associated Press Top 25 and reached the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament.
Larkin's decision means Miami will be without its top six scorers from this season when it takes the court next fall. Larkin led the Hurricanes in scoring. The next five highest scorers for Miami were all seniors.
Larkin is the son of Baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, and had until the end of Sunday to officially enter the draft.
The Hurricanes were 48-20 with Larkin in their lineup.
