The SportsXchange

Colorado junior Andre Roberson and Detroit junior Ray McCallum will give up their final seasons of college eligibility and enter the upcoming NBA draft.

Roberson had canceled a press conference two days earlier when he was scheduled to announce his decision. On Sunday, the school released a statement saying Roberson has decided to turn pro.

Roberson, a 6-7 forward, averaged 10.9 points and 11.2 rebounds per game last season and was named All-Pac-12.

"We support Andre and want what's best for him and his family," head coach Tad Boyle said Sunday afternoon in a statement released by the school. "We wish him the best."

Late Saturday, Detroit announced that McCallum, a point guard who was named the Horizon League player of the year, would enter the NBA draft.

"I want to thank the University of Detroit Mercy, my coaching staff and my teammates. I've enjoyed my three years with them," McCallum said in a statement released by the school. "It has been very special playing for my father and helping to build the basketball program to a championship level."

He averaged 18.9 points and 4.5 assists last season.
