Two Dukes leave early for the NBA draft

Kind of weird news out of Pittsburgh, both center (and shot blocker extraordinaire) Shawn James and guard Kojo Mensah (not Bonsu) are forgoing their senior years to enter the NBA draft. Only James has a real shot at getting drafted, so maybe something else is afoot - grades, money? Who knows.

Best of luck, and too bad for Duquesne, which loses two of its best players. Mensah averaged 12.1 points per game, and James averaged 12.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, and nearly 4 blocks per game - he had 111 last year. He averaged an absurd 6.53 blocks per game the year before at Northeastern, and NCAA record. Those are video game numbers.
