UK’s Terrence Jones
opts out of NBA talk

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Two of three Kentucky underclassmen are heading to the NBA as only freshman Terrence Jones opts to return to the school’s basketball program.
Junior DeAndre Liggins remained in the draft after hearing positive feedback from several NBA teams at a combine Sunday in New Jersey.
A news conference scheduled by Kentucky for Monday to make the announcement has been canceled.
The deadline for underclassmen to withdraw from the NBA draft was Sunday night.
Liggins says coach John Calipari encouraged him to return for his season but “it was in the best interests of me and family to stay in the draft.”
Freshman Brandon Knight announced he would remain in the draft on Friday.
Jones, the Associated Press Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year, and junior Darius Miller will be the Wildcats’ two returning starters in 2011-12.
They will join a recruiting class with four incoming McDonald’s All-Americans: forwards Michael Gilchrist, Anthony Davis and Kyle Wiltjer, and guard Marquis Teague.
