UCLA Shabazz Muhammad will enter the NBA Draft after his freshman season, head coach Ben Howland said following the Bruins' 74-69 victory over No. 11 Arizona on Saturday night.
"That was his last game in Pauley, no doubt about it," Howland told reporters.
Muhammad, who is averaging 18 points per game, is expected to be a lottery pick in the draft, and very likely played his final home game Saturday.
"The fans here are great," Muhammad said, according to, while admitting he heard the fans' chants of 'one more year!.' "I've enjoyed myself this whole year. I've been going through a lot this year with injuries and just getting experience at the college level. I'm really happy I came here and represented UCLA because it's a great school and I just gained a lot of experience coming here. It's great."
