Boston College basketball standouts Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman have declared for the NBA Draft, but will not hire agents to preserve their college eligibility.

Robinson, a 6-foot-6-inch junior guard, led the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring last season at 20.7 points per game. He finished runner-up for ACC Player of the Year honors and was an honorable mention selection for the Associated Press All-America team.

Robinson averaged 24.3 points per game in conference play and netted a career-high 46 points in a loss at Notre Dame Feb. 6.
