Second UNLV Basketball Player Declares For Draft

Another UNLV basketball player is set to forgo the remainder of his college eligibility and enter the NBA Draft.

The Las Vegas Sun reports sophomore guard Pat McCaw announced he will be leaving school to turn professional.

The announcement comes after freshman Stephen Zimmerman also announced he would be leaving to turn professional, and after UNLV announced the hiring of Chris Beard from the University of Arkansas-Little Rock as the program's next head coach.

Casey Morell is the coordinating producer of Nevada Public Radio's flagship broadcast State of Nevada and one of the station's midday newscast announcers. (He's also been interviewed by Jimmy Fallon, whatever that's worth.)
