Hayward left college after the title run in 2010, and Mack stuck around for the following year’s run. The Wizards drafted Mack 34th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft. He served as the Wizards’ backup point guard, playing in 64 games. He was beaten out for the job by veteran Jannero Pargo.
Hayward, however, has confidence he won’t be the only Butler Bulldog in the league for long. He expects Mack will be back.
