Purdue's Johnson, Moore pull out of NBA draft

Purdue's E'Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson have withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for their senior seasons.

The school announced their decision Saturday.

Moore, a 6-foot-4 guard, was a first-team All-Big Ten pick this past season. He led the team with 16.4 points per game as the Boilermakers went 29-6 and shared the Big Ten regular-season title.

Johnson, a 6-10 center, averaged 15.5 points and a team-high 7.1 rebounds. Purdue's career leader in blocked shots has been on the Big Ten All-Defensive Team the past two seasons.


Moore and Johnson led the Boilermakers to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament after Robbie Hummel tore his right ACL late in the regular season.
