Michigan losing Hardaway Jr. to draft

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan guard Tim Hardaway Jr. is leaving the Wolverines early for the NBA draft.

The 6-foot-6 junior announced his decision Wednesday. He is the second Michigan player to declare for early entry to the draft this year. National player of the year Trey Burke announced his departure Sunday.

Burke and Hardaway helped lead the Wolverines to their first Final Four appearance since 1993. Michigan lost to Louisville in the national title game.

There’s been no announcement yet on the futures of Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III, two talented freshmen who could also leave Michigan for the NBA.

Hardaway averaged 14.5 points per game this season and started all 107 games he played during his three-year Michigan career.
