Goodbye Bloomington, hello NBA.
To no surprise to many, Indiana junior Victor Oladipo, who helped lead the Hoosiers to a overall 29-7 record and Sweet Sixteen birth, announced Tuesday afternoon that he will be entering June’s NBA Draft.
Oladipo had a spectacular junior season as a Hoosier, earning an All-American First Team selection and was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. Oladipo led the Hoosiers with 13.6 points per game along with 6.3 rebounds.
Many believe that Oladipo will be a Lottery Pick in the draft, and according to ESPN’s Chad Ford, is believed to be sixth overall among all draft prospects.
Next up for the Indiana Hoosiers is the wait to see when Sophomore Cody Zeller will decide his draft status, which many believe Zeller will make an announcement as early as this week.
The NBA Draft will take place on Thursday, June 27.
