Victor Oladipo Is Going Pro

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(BLOOMINGTON, Ind.) -- Indiana junior guard Victor Oladipo announced Tuesday he would enter the 2013 NBA Draft.

"It's truly a dream come true [playing in the NBA]," Oladipo said during a news conference at Assembly Hall. "But it's become a goal. To actually achieve my goal is an amazing feeling. I just got to keep working and making sure that my hard work and work ethic stays that way and becomes a way of life."

Oladipo, a first-team All-American, finished this season averaging 13.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game.

Oladipo was also named the National Association of Basketball Coaches Co-Defensive Player of the Year, sharing the award with Kansas' Jeff Withey.

Oladipo is expected to be a top-ten pick.
