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.
Bowman led the Eagles in minutes as a sophomore. The 6-1 guard averaged 17.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 4.7 assists last season. On Dec. 9, Bowman led BC to an upset of then-No. 1 Duke with 30 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists.
The NBA Draft Combine in Chicago is May 16-20. Early-entry draft candidates have until May 30 to withdraw their names from the draft list and keep NCAA eligibility.
The NBA Draft is June 21.
