ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan sophomores Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III are entering the NBA draft.

“I heard from the advisory board in the middle of last week, a couple days after that I really decided,” Stauskas said. “The information I got from them was kind of what I wanted to hear.”

Robinson, whose dad played in the NBA, needed a little longer to decide whether to stay or go.

“I really didn’t make my decision until last night,” he said Tuesday.

Mitch McGary has not decided if he will stay in school or go pro. McGary was not made available for interviews after his teammates had a news conference.

The Wolverines lost Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway to the NBA last year as underclassmen, but retooled well enough to win the Big Ten title and advance to an NCAA tournament regional final.
