Warren Returning to Oklahoma; XU's Brown Testing

As first reported by Jeff Goodman of and confirmed in numerous published reports, Oklahoma freshman guard Willie Warren will return to the Sooners for his sophomore campaign instead of entering the NBA Draft. "That's my decision," Warren told Goodman. "I'm staying." Warren was one of the top freshmen in the country this past season, averaging 14.6 points and 3.1 assists per game in helping lead Oklahoma to the Elite Eight. The 6-4 Warren is a projected lottery pick in the 2010 draft.

Derrick Brown Testing Waters

Xavier already lost head coach Sean Miller to Arizona -- will it also lose its best player? Derrick Brown, the Musketeers' leading rebounder and second-leading scorer, has announced that he will be testing the waters of the NBA Draft. He will not hire an agent, though, leaving open the open of returning to Xavier. "If I get information that it’s best for me to come back to school, I will. If it’s telling me not to, I won’t," Brown said. "If [the NBA] is not the best for me then I’ll be back here for a whole other year because I love my teammates and I love my coaching staff." The 6-8 athletic forward averaged 13.7 points and 6.1 rebounds last season, helping leading the Musketeers to the Sweet Sixteen.
