LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky will hold a news conference at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday with freshman forward Julius Randle, who will announce whether he is entering the NBA draft or returning for another season.
Sunday is the deadline for underclassmen to declare, and the 6-foot-9 Randle has been projected as a lottery pick if he turns pro. He led the Wildcats in scoring and rebounding during their NCAA title-game run.
Decisions also loom this week for other Kentucky freshmen, including such as twin guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison -also possible first-round selections - and center Dakari Johnson. Sophomore forward Alex Poythress could also enter the draft.
Guard James Young said last week that he would turn pro.
Wildcats freshman forward Marcus Lee and sophomore center Willie Cauley-Stein announced last week that they would return.
