Tyus Battle will leave Syracuse and enter the NBA draft, a source close to the junior said Friday.
Battle, a 6-foot-6 guard, had been expected to make this his last season with the Orange. Battle entered his name in the NBA draft last year but decided to return to school.
Battle led Syracuse in scoring in each of the last two seasons. He averaged 17.2 points per game this year.
With his decision to leave, Battle ends his career at No. 16 on Syracuse’s all-time scoring list with 1,647 points.
