Victor Oladipo will be holding a press conference on Tuesday afternoon, the school announced, and according to a report from Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com, he’ll be entering the NBA Draft.
It makes sense.
Oladipo will graduate in May, and he’s played himself from an afterthought into a lottery pick with a season where he earned first-team all-american honors. At this point, there’s no reason for Oladipo to remain in school.

I’m on record saying that I would consider Marquette freshman Henry Ellenson if I had the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and while, at this point, I think that Brandon Ingram is probably going to end up going No. 2 — (Maybe No. 1???) — I still believe that Ellenson is going to be one of the best players from this draft class.
Well, just take a look at these highlights from the 26-point, 16-rebound performance he had in a win over Providence last night.
Then remember that Ellenson is 6-foot-11:
A solid poster dunk went down in the junior college ranks last night as Pensacola State sophomore Jamal Thomas finished a dunk through a block attempt against Northwest Florida State.
The 6-foot-3 Thomas used his power and momentum to go through the opposing shot blocker and the play made his head coach, Pete Pena, go nuts with an over-exaggerated fist pump. The video is short, but be sure to watch for Pena’s reaction near the logo at the top right of the screen.
