Stanford's Lopez Twins To Turn Pro

The Lopez twins are going pro together.

Stanford sophomore Robin Lopez is joining his 7-foot brother Brook in entering the NBA draft. The brothers made their announcement to The Associated Press on Monday through their mother, Deborah Ledford.

It was expected that Brook would declare himself eligible for the NBA, but Robin was not so certain. They were prep stars in Fresno, California, and came to Stanford together. Now, they will depart as a tandem too.

Brook Lopez, a third-team All-American and a first-team Pac-10 selection, averaged 19.3 points and 8.2 rebounds to go with 56 blocks this season.

Robin Lopez averaged 10.2 points and 5.2 boards and blocked 83
shots for the Cardinal.
