UNDATED (AP) -- The Lopez twins are going pro together.
Stanford sophomore Robin Lopez is joining his 7-foot brother
Brook in entering the NBA draft. The brothers made their
announcement to The Associated Press on Monday through their
mother, Deborah Ledford.
It was expected that Brook would declare himself eligible for
the NBA, but Robin was not so certain. They were prep stars in
Fresno, California, and came to Stanford together. Now, they will
depart as a tandem too.
Brook Lopez, a third-team All-American and a first-team Pac-10
selection, averaged 19.3 points and 8.2 rebounds to go with 56
blocks this season. Robin Lopez averaged 10.2 points and 5.2 boards and blocked 83 shots for the Cardinal.
