NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin has given up
his final two years of eligibility and will enter the NBA draft
after a sophomore season that ended with him being recognized as
college basketball's top player.
Griffin announced his decision Tuesday at a campus news
conference alongside coach Jeff Capel, saying it was time for him
to take his game to the next level. He says he will look back on
his days at Oklahoma as a special time.
Griffin helped the Sooners win 30 games in a season for only the
fifth time in school history, shattering the school records for
double-doubles and rebounds along the way.
