Syracuse losing point guard Flynn to the draft



SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Syracuse point guard Jonny Flynn turned pro and signed with an agent, ending his college career after two seasons and taking a top player off the Orange for the second straight year.

Jim Boeheim has gotten used to revolving talent.

“I’ve known pretty much for a while,” Boeheim said Thursday. “He’s had a tremendous career here, and I think he’s going to be a tremendous player at the next level. We hate to lose him, but the opportunity that he has and will take advantage of I think is tremendous. It’s a lot of money and it’s hard to not take. He’s been great for us and we wish him nothing but the best.”

Flynn, who was not available for comment, signed with Leon Rose’s Creative Artists Agency Sports.

Most mock drafts show Flynn being selected in the top half of the 30-pick first round.

Harangody to test waters

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Notre Dame forward Luke Harangody is putting his name in the NBA draft with the intention of turning pro, but will leave open the option of returning for his senior season.

“We’re going in full speed. We’re going in to go into it, not to just see if I need to improve on anything,” Harangody said Thursday. “We’re just going to go out there and try to get this thing done.”

Still, Harangody doesn’t plan on hiring an agent, meaning he can pull out of the draft by the June 15 deadline.

Harangody, who averaged 23.3 points and 11.8 rebounds last season, has led the Big East in scoring and rebounding in back-to-back seasons. He was the league’s player of the year in 2008.

Xavier’s Brown may leave

CINCINNATI – Xavier’s Derrick Brown has declared himself eligible for the NBA draft, while retaining the option of changing his mind and returning to school for his senior season.

Brown led Xavier in rebounding at 6.1 per game and was second in scoring at 13.7 points last season, when the Musketeers reached the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
