Ben McLemore is one and done at Kansas. Ricky Ledo is none and done with Providence.
McLemore, Kansas' talented freshman guard, was among several underclassmen who wasted little time in declaring for the NBA draft on Tuesday, the day after the college season ended.
Ledo, Providence, R.I., native, practiced with the Friars this season but never played because he failed to qualify academically. Practice was enough, apparently, to make him a possible first-round pick.
Indiana All-American Victor Oladipo announced he was giving up his senior season to enter the draft. New Mexico's Tony Snell also announced he was going pro.
The father of Louisville guard Russ Smith, who helped the Cardinals win a national title by beating Michigan on Monday night, says his son will also enter the draft.
In Lawrence, Kan., Jayhawks coach Bill Self said he's known for a while it was time for the 6-foot-6 McElmore to go.
''Ben kept telling us in February, `Don't worry about ge...
BEST OF MAXIM
LAWRENCE, Kan. The knock on Ben McLemore is that he's too "nice" for the NBA, and just because that statement sounds a bit absurd doesn't make it any less well, true.
"Ben's the most talented kid I've ever worked with," Kansas coach Bill Self said Tuesday, as he watched his best player, McLemore, declare for the NBA Draft after a remarkable...

Ledo, a Providence native, says Tuesday he ''felt he could not pass up this opportunity to enter the NBA draft now.''
In September, the NCAA ruled that Ledo could not compete in games for the Friars in 2012-13, but he did practice and work out with the team during the season. The 6-foot-6 Ledo did not...
Ahead of the 2012-2013 season, the Providence College basketball program landed one of the biggest recruits in the nation – Ricky Ledo. The hometown prep star (ranked No. 21 overall by ESPN) was supposed to help rebuild the Friars’ program and take them back to the NCAA Tournament – a place they haven’t been since 2004. But in early September, those plans were...
Kansas Jayhawks guard Ben McLemore has a press conference scheduled for Tuesday.
Kansas athletic officials are reviewing allegations that the former AAU basketball coach of Ben McLemore received cash payments aimed at steering the star freshman to a sports agent.

Reports indicated that Ricky Ledo would meet with head coach Ed Cooley upon Cooley’s arrival back in Providence on Tuesday after the Final Four. It didn’t take long for word to leak out that Ledo had decided to enter the NBA draft and forego next season with the Friars.

arguably the most successful freshman season in school history.
Graduating college in three years, explosive Indiana Hoosiers shooting guard Victor Oladipo wisely declared for the NBA Draft on Tuesday. The 6-foot-5, 215 pound Oladipo, born to Nigerian parents and raised in Hyattsville, Maryland, averaged 13.6 points, 6.3 boards and 2.1 assists over 36 games. “It’s been an honor to play here at Indiana, but I will be entering the NBA draft...

For IU fans, the immediate reaction to the news that sophomore Cody Zeller and junior Victor Oladipo will both enter the 2013 NBA Draft is one of a bittersweet nature.
On one hand, it’s hard to escape the thought of what next season could have looked like had the two All-Americans opted to return for another crack at a national championship. It’s been 26 years since the last...
The NCAA Tournament ended Monday with Louisville's victory over Michigan in an extremely entertaining basketball game.
For NBA fans that may not mean much. But Tuesday, the dominoes for the NBA Draft started to fall.

After a long hiatus (also known as post-Sweet 16 depression) Podcast on the Brink is back to talk about Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller’s decisions to go pro and recap the year that was for the Hoosiers.
Co-hosts Matt Dollinger and Justin Albers are joined by Indy Star columnist Bob Kravitz to discuss Oladipo and Zeller’s prospects in the NBA as well as Indiana’s season-ending...
Earlier this week we reported that Cody Zeller will be joining teammate Victor Oladipo in declaring early for the NBA Draft this summer. They aren't the only ones to do it or about to do it either and coupled with a lot of graduating talent it means that the Big Ten in 2013-14 is going to look vastly different than it did this year.
Different to some in the national media...
