According to Villanova’s official athletic website, Villanova.com, Wildcats sophomore guard Kyle Lowry has announced that he will enter the NBA Draft. However, he will not hire an agent, leaving him the option of returning to the Wildcats. Coach Jay Wright supported Lowry’s decision. “This has been a very difficult process for Kyle and I’m proud of the way he has handled it. I fully support Kyle’s decision. This experience will benefit no matter what decision he ultimately makes.” Lowry helped lead Villanova to the Elite Eight this past season, averaging 11.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 2.3 steals per game. He was also named second-team all-Big East.
