Ohio State star forward Bates-Diop declares for NBA draft

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State star forward Keita Bates-Diop is headed to the NBA following a breakout season.

As expected, the 6-foot-7 forward announced Monday that he is declaring for the NBA draft after being named the Big Ten's player of the year and leading the Buckeyes to the NCAA Tournament. Bates-Diop made his announcement on campus at a news conference accompanied by his parents and Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann.

Bates-Diop, who missed most of 2017 with a leg injury, averaged 19.8 points and 8.7 rebounds for an Ohio State team that exceeded predictions this season. The Buckeyes were one of the nation's biggest surprises and made the NCAA field in Holtmann's first season. Ohio State's tourney run ended with a loss to Gonzaga.
