Seminoles’ Wafer to enter NBA Draft

Tallahassee, FL (Sports Network) – Florida State sophomore guard Von Wafer has
decided to forego his final two years of eligibility and enter the 2005 NBA
Draft. Wafer made his intentions known to head coach Leonard Hamilton.

Wafer played in 29 games during the 2004-05 campaign, including 22 starts, and
averaged a team-high 12.5 points to go along with 2.5 rebounds per outing.

“Von Wafer’s father has notified me of his intentions to enter his name for
the upcoming NBA Draft,” said Hamilton. “He has made tremendous progress in
the last two years and we are confident in his ability to play at the next
level. He has done a very good job for us and we wish him well. We would love
to have had him complete his four year career with us. However, we respect the
decision he and his family have made and he has our support.”

Wafer shot 39.6 percent from three-point range during the season (65-of-164)
and scored a career-high 30 points in a victory against then-No. 3 Wake Forest
on January 18.
