Izzo will assist Davis as he explores option of entering NBA
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State coach Tom Izzo says he will assist freshman Deyonta Davis as he considers entering the NBA draft.
Izzo had a news conference Tuesday, wrapping up a season that ended with a stunning loss to Middle Tennessee State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Izzo says he isn't sure if Davis will return for a sophomore season. The 6-foot-10, 240-pound forward is expected to be a first-round pick if he becomes eligible for the draft.
Davis averaged 5.5 rebounds and 7.5 points, making nearly 60 percent of his shots. He had nearly two blocks a game and finished with 64 - a freshman mark at the school and second for a season at Michigan State.
