IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa All-America center Luka Garza announced he'll enter the NBA draft process without an agent so he can maintain his college eligibility.
"This year was one I could never have imagined," Garza said Friday. "None of the awards or accolades could have happened without the University of Iowa, my coaches, and my teammates. Choosing Coach (Fran) McCaffery and Iowa was the best decision I have ever made.
"The NBA has been my dream since I started playing basketball as a kid and I'm going to do everything I can to pursue that. If it ends up not being the right time to make the move to the NBA, I'm excited about the potential of what my senior season as a Hawkeye could have in store."
