Kentucky's Goodwin to turn pro

The SportsXchange

Kentucky announced on Monday that freshman Archie Goodwin will enter the NBA draft this year but said freshman Willie Cauley-Stein and Kyle Wiltjer, will be back next season.

There was no word on what freshman Alex Poythress will do.

"I'm excited that Willie and Kyle have decided to return for next season," coach John Calipari said. "When we talk about a players-first program, our goal is for each player to reach his dreams. Willie and Kyle believe it is in their best interest to return to Kentucky next season to achieve those dreams, and I fully support their decisions.

"Although I really wanted Archie to return for his sophomore season, I fully support him choosing to pursue his dreams. He has the drive and desire to be great and I will continue to do everything I can to make sure he succeeds in life both on and off the court. I believe, with another year of hard work and competition, they all can take their games to the next level. I look forward to seeing them all grow into young men."

Goodwin averaged 14.1 points and 4.6 rebounds for the Wildcats this season.
