Hill Stays, Vaden Backs Away From NBA Draft

Last updated on Tuesday, June 17, 2008

(UNDATED) - Monday was the final day for undergraduates to remove their names from consideration for the NBA Draft and retain their college eligibility.

A pair of Indianapolis natives chose different paths for their future plans.

Former IU guard Robert Vaden will return to Alabama-Birmingham for his senior season. Vaden played two seasons with the Hoosiers before following former Indiana coach Mike Davis from Bloomington to Birmingham.

IUPUI guard George Hill announced over the weekend that he would remain in the draft and that he had hired an agent. The Indianapolis Broad Ripple product gives up his senior season of eligibility with the Jaguars.
