Colorado’s Andre Roberson Enters NBA Draft
For the Colorado men’s basketball program, the post-Andre Roberson era began the instant that the 6-foot-7 junior forward informed the school Sunday afternoon that he will give up his final year of eligibility and declare for the 2013 NBA draft.
“After much consideration and counsel from my family and Coach Boyle, I have decided to forego my senior season and enter the NBA draft. I am proud to have been a member of Colorado Basketball and want to thank Coach Boyle and his staff, the administration, the fans, and the University for this incredible experience,” Roberson said in a statement Sunday night through the school. “It has been an honor and privilege to make Buffalo history with my fellow teammates over the past three seasons. Additionally, I want to express my appreciation to my friends and family for all their support during this process. I look forward to continued development as I embark upon the next steps in my journey of fulfilling my dream of playing in the NBA.”
A two-time, first-team all-Pac-12 selection, Roberson also was voted conference defensive player of the year for 2012-13 by the league’s coaches. He led the Pac-12 in rebounding (11.2 per game), ranking second nationally in that category.
