3 Washington State players withdraw from draft consideration

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State's Josh Hawkinson, Ike Iroegbu and Conor Clifford have withdrawn their names from consideration for the NBA draft and will return for their senior seasons.

The three declared for the draft in early April but didn't hire agents, making them eligible to return to school.

Hawkinson, a 6-foot-10 forward, led the team in scoring and led the Pac-12 in rebounding at 11.1 boards per game last season.
