CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — University of Virginia basketball star Justin Anderson will enter the 2015 NBA draft, sources told Yahoo Sports reporter Adrian Wojnarowski and ESPN reporter Jeff Goodman. College undergraduates have until April 26 to officially declare for the draft.

Anderson, who averaged 12 points and four rebounds a game, was a key part of a 30-win Cavalier that won the ACC regular season title. Anderson broke his finger and missed UVa.’s last eight regular season games. He returned, but was less effective as a scorer, for the ACC and NCAA tournaments.

Draft Express listed Anderson as a probable second-round pick.
