Aaron Gordon's decision was expected. Nick Johnson had to build toward his move to the NBA. Always a steady player, he boosted his draft status with a superb junior season, earning numerous All-America honors while leading Arizona to within a few seconds of the Final Four for the second time in three years. Now he and Gordon are headed to the NBA.

A more relaxed fan base, milder weather and a chance to coach at the top-rated public university in the country added up to Cuonzo Martin making the decision to leave Tennessee for California. Cal hired Martin as the 16th men's basketball coach in school history Tuesday, a decision that stunned Volunteers administrators and players after he had reaffirmed his commitment to Tennessee just two weeks ago. Martin said it was a difficult move but the opportunity at Cal was too much to pass up. I got off the plane and I just said, 'Ahhh,''' Martin said during his introductory news conference in Berkeley.

Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III are skipping their last two seasons at Michigan to enter the NBA draft and chase a dream they've had since they were kids. You see a lot of kids now making that jump from Canada and I'm glad to be a part of that group.'' Robinson, meanwhile, might have looked at the league a little earlier because his father - nicknamed ''Big Dog'' - was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1994 NBA draft. ''He stayed an extra year in college when he thought he wasn't ready.'' Robinson, who is from St. John, Ind., said the NBA's undergraduate advisory committee informed him he would be a first-round pick if he entered the draft and he chose to make the leap Monday night. He turned down a chance to enter the draft last year as a likely first-round pick and ended up having back surgery last season, putting his standing as an NBA prospect in doubt.
