Indiana's Blackmon withdraws from NBA draft on deadline day

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana guard James Blackmon Jr. has withdrawn from the NBA draft.

The Hoosiers made the announcement Tuesday.

Blackmon, a rising junior, missed the final 22 games last season after having knee surgery. He averaged 15.8 points in 13 games, shooting 46.3 percent on 3-pointers before getting hurt.

Blackmon announced in April he would enter the draft, though most people expected the former Indiana prep star to return to school.
