Minnesota's Coffey to skip senior season, stay in draft pool

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota scoring leader Amir Coffey will skip his senior season and stay in the NBA draft pool.

Coffey's agent, Javon Phillips, confirmed the decision Wednesday night, the deadline for players to withdraw from the draft and return to their schools.

The 6-foot-8 Coffey, who was the primary point guard for the Gophers after playing on the wing his first two years, averaged 16.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists as a junior. He was a third team All-Big Ten selection for Minnesota, which lost to Michigan State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
