Person with knowledge of situation tells AP: Victor Oladipo leaving Indiana early for NBA

Victor Oladipo is expected to skip his senior season at Indiana and enter the NBA draft.

Oladipo, a first-team All-American, will make his decision official at a Tuesday news conference, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it had not been announced.

Oladipo, who is on track to graduate in May, was the Hoosiers' second-leading scorer, averaging 13.6 points to go along with 6.3 rebounds per game. Indiana's sophomore center, Cody Zeller, is expected to decide whether he will leave for the NBA as early as Wednesday.

Zeller led the team in scoring and rebounding as Indiana reached the No. 1 ranking for much of the year and advanced to the NCAA East Region semifinals, where they lost to Syracuse.
