Sports briefs: Kentucky’s Julius Randle to enter draft
First Published Apr 22 2014 10:12 pm • Last Updated Apr 22 2014 10:12 pm

college basketball • Kentucky forward Julius Randle will leave after one season to enter the NBA draft, where he is expected to be among the top five selections.

With five days left before the deadline for underclassmen to declare, the 6-foot-9 Dallas native announced the decision Tuesday. Projected as a lottery pick from the outset, Randle solidified his draft stock by leading Kentucky (29-11) to the NCAA final. Randle averaged 15.0 points and 10.4 rebounds and was voted to The Associated Press’ All-America third team. With Tuesday’s announcement, he joins guard James Young, who said last week that he would enter the June 26 draft.
