UofL’s Nwora, UK’s Maxey Announces Pro Basketball Intentions

UNDATED (AP) — University of Louisville basketball player Jordan Nwora and UK player Tyrese Maxey announced their intentions to turn pro on Monday.

Nwora was selected to The Associated Press All-America third team as a junior and his decision to turn pro was expected. He averaged 18 points and 7.7 rebounds per game while shooting 44% from the field. The 6-foot-7 Nwora was named to the AP’s all-ACC first team.

Maxey tied for second on the team in scoring at 14 points per game and shot nearly 43% with 33 3-pointers. Southeastern Conference coaches voted Maxey to the all-freshman team and all-SEC second team. His decision to leave comes a day after sophomore point guard Ashton Hagans announced he will enter the draft after two seasons with Kentucky.
