Butler junior Shelvin Mack leaving for NBA Draft


Posted May 8 2011 11:05PM

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Butler says guard Shelvin Mack is keeping his name in the June 23 NBA draft and won't return for his senior season with the small Indiana school that reached the NCAA basketball final the last two seasons.

Mack is Butler's all-time NCAA tournament scoring leader with 232 points in 13 games. He was the Bulldogs' second-leading scorer for the season at 16.

Butler now faces a significant rebuilding project with the departure of five seniors, including starters Matt Howard and Shawn Vanzant.

Mack was the only Bulldogs player in double figures with 13 as they fell to Connecticut in the April 4 title game in Houston, 53-41. Butler lost to Duke in the 2010 final.

Last year, Bulldogs sophomore Gordon Hayward was the No. 9 NBA pick, going to Utah.
