Duke Sophomore Rodney Hood Entering NBA Draft

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke sophomore Rodney Hood is entering the NBA draft.

Hood said in a statement Friday that playing for Mike Krzyzewski "helped me grow and develop as a player and a person" to prepare him for the NBA.

Hood averaged 16.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists after sitting out last year following his transfer from Mississippi State. He was part of a 1-2 scoring punch with freshman Jabari Parker, who declared for the draft Thursday as a strong candidate for the No. 1 overall pick. Hood was a second-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick.

While Parker and Hood are gone, Duke is bolstered by the nation's No. 1 recruiting class, led by top overall recruit Jahlil Okafor along with top-10 prospects Tyus Jones and Justise Winslow.
