Florida stars turning pro

Gainesville, FL (Sports Network) – Florida juniors Corey Brewer, Taurean
Green, Al Horford and Joakim Noah all announced they would forego their senior
seasons in college to turn pro.

The Gators did get some good news, however, as head coach Billy Donovan
officially spurned Kentucky to stay in Gainesville.

Donovan led his stars to consecutive national championships, becoming the
first team to win back-to-back titles since Duke in 1992.

“They made a decision to forgo their senior years and enter the draft,”
Donovan said at a press conference. “I do not expect any of them back here
next year.”

Brewer, Horford and Noah are all expected to be NBA lottery picks.

The annual NBA Draft will take place on June 28 in New York City.
