Butler's Mack remaining in NBA Draft

Shelvin Mack has decided to forgo his final year of eligibility and remain in the NBA Draft.

The news was first reported by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Mack helped the Bulldogs make the past two Final Fours. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 16 points per game last season. He's projected by most to be selected late in the first round or early in the second round of next month's draft.

The deadline for underclassmen to withdraw from the draft is tonight.

Butler's Mack in draft ... at least for now

Butler's Shelvin Mack is declaring for the NBA Draft, but whether he'll remain in it past next month's deadline to withdraw remains unclear, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Tuesday.

Mack has no immediate plans to hire an agent.

The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 16.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists this season while leading Butler to its second consecutive NCAA tournament title game. The Kentucky native is projected as a borderline first-round pick, though he could be aided by underclassmen like North Carolina's John Henson, Baylor's Perry Jones and Ohio State's Jared Sullinger already announcing that they will return to school.

The deadline to withdraw from the NBA Draft is May 8.

"[Washington coach] Lorenzo Romar and [Villanova coach] Jay Wright did a terrific job of coaching the select players in Las Vegas.

Butler's Howard will be a 'game-time decision'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Butler forward Matt Howard won't practice Sunday and will be a "game-time decision" for Monday's national title game against Duke, according to coach Brad Stevens.

Howard banged his head on the court in Saturday night's win over Michigan State and might have suffered a concussion, though Stevens was hesitant to describe it that way. "It's just enough that he won't practice today," Stevens said Sunday afternoon. Howard did not attend any of Sunday's media responsibilities here at Lucas Oil Stadium. Butler officials said he was at the hotel and would remain there.

Howard is averaging 12.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.

In another development, Butler guard Shelvin Mack said he will play against Duke.

Mack missed some of Saturday's game with cramps.

"I'll be ready to go," Mack said.
