DawgmanRadio: Murray & Chriss to Enter Draft

On Wednesday afternoon, Washington Basketball tweeted out that freshmen Dejounte Murray, a 6-foot-5 guard from Rainier Beach, and Marquese Chriss, a 6-foot-9 forward from Sacramento, Calif. would forego their final three years of eligibility at UW to enter into the 2016 NBA Draft.




Murray and Chriss were second and third in scoring on the team behind senior Andrew Andrews, with 16.1 and 13.7 points per game. With Andrews graduating, that means UW will lose 51 points of their 84 points per game average. 

It also means that Washington is two scholarships light for the 2016-17 season. They gain three players in Markelle Fultz, Sam Timmins and Matt Atewe for next season, but obviously lose Andrews, Murray and Chriss. They were at 13 scholarships for the season that was just played because of the scholarship awarded to Dan Kingma, a former walk-on, and that number also included both Timmins and Atewe, who sat out.
