Tar Heels' Davis Declares For NBA Draft

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina forward Ed Davis is skipping his final two seasons of eligibility to enter the NBA draft.

The 6-foot-10 forward was the team's second-leading scorer. He was also the Tar Heels' top rebounder and shot blocker before missing the last 13 games with a broken left wrist sustained against Duke in February.

In a statement from the school, Davis said he is pursuing a "lifelong dream of playing in the NBA" and that he would continue to work toward his degree.

Davis averaged 13.4 points and 9.6 rebounds this year and was a key reserve as a freshman in North Carolina's run to the 2009 national championship. He had 11 points and eight rebounds in 14 minutes against Michigan State in that title game.
