It's official: Hasheem Thabeet is going pro

This surprised nobody.

Hasheem Thabeet, UConn's 7-3 center, will forego his senior season and enter his name into the NBA Draft. He averaged 13.6 points, 10.8 rebounds and 4.2 blocks for the Huskies (31-5) this season and was named the co-Big East Player of the Year with Pitt's DeJuan Blair. More known for his defensive abilities than offensive prowess, Thabeet is the two-time National Defensive Player of the Year.

An interesting stat from the Courant's story:
Thabeet is the 11th UConn player to declare early for the draft. Eight of the previous 10 were selected in the lottery.

Good evening. Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't. Help me!
