Murray State: All-American Morant will enter the NBA draft

MURRAY, Ky. (AP) Murray State says that All-American guard Ja Morant will enter the NBA draft following a record-breaking season for the Racers.

The school said Wednesday night on its website that Morant announced his decision at the team's arena. The athletic 6-foot-3 sophomore is projected as a lottery pick and could be chosen as high as second in the June 20 draft.

Morant led Murray State to the Ohio Valley Conference regular season and tournament championships and was the league's Player of the Year. In the Racers' first-round NCAA Tournament win over Marquette, he had the ninth triple-double in tournament history with 17 points, 16 assists and 11 rebounds.
