TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State junior Chris Singleton is giving up his final year of collegiate eligibility to enter the NBA draft.
The 6-9 Singleton was one of the nation's top defenders and led the Seminoles in scoring and rebounding this season. He missed several games late in the season with a broken right foot, but came back to play in the NCAA tournament.
Singleton and senior guard Derwin Kitchen are the only regulars leaving Florida State, which finished 23-11 and advanced into the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament before being eliminated by Virginia Commonwealth.
Singleton scored 975 points during his career. He ranked eighth in career steals with 180 and fourth with 136 blocked shots, the only player in school history in the top 10 of both categories.
