Zeller leaving Indiana for NBA

Indiana sophomore center Cody Zeller is heading to the NBA.

Zeller announced his plans to enter the 2013 NBA Draft during a Wednesday news conference at Assembly Hall.

"The past two years here have been probably the best two years of my life," Zeller said. "Being able to play basketball for these coaches and with the guys in that locker room and in front of the fans of Indiana has been great. At this part in my life I think it's best for me to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA."

On Tuesday, Indiana junior guard Victor Oladipo announced his decision to enter the draft.

Zeller averaged 16.5 points and 8.0 rebounds this season for the Hoosiers, who won the Big Ten regular-season title and finished with a record of 29-7 after losing to Syracuse in the East Region semifinals of the NCAA Tournament.

Over two seasons at Indiana, Zeller scored 1,157 points in 72 games.
