Texas' Myck Kabongo entering NBA Draft
The Longhorns lose their best player and point guard, Myck Kabongo, to the NBA. The sophomore was suspended for more than half the season due to punishments related to last year's NBA Draft.
Not much of a shocker here. Texas sophomore point guard Myck Kabongo will call it a college career -- after essentially one and a half seasons -- and put his name into the NBA Draft pool. The school announced the decision Friday morning.
You'll recall Kabongo sat until February of this past season after the NCAA punished him for impermissible benefits in the leadup to last year's draft. The organization deemed Kabongo wasn't truthful with Texas officials regarding benefits of travel and personal training last spring, when Kabongo tested draft waters.
Now he's going for good and can receive all the help with money and training he wants, because signing with an agent isn't that far behind.
Texas missed its first NCAA tournament in 14 years this past season. Kabongo averaged 14.6 points, 5.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds in the team's 11 final games.
