AUSTIN -- All-American point guard D.J. Augustin says he is
leaving Texas after two seasons to turn pro.
Augustin said Wednesday that he has long dreamed of playing in
the NBA and that he is "ready to start living this dream."
Augustin averaged 19.2 points and 5.8 assists in leading Texas
to one of the best seasons in school history.
The Longhorns won a school-record 31 games, a share of the Big
12 regular season championship and advanced to the NCAA regional
finals before losing to Memphis. Augustin won the Bob Cousy Award
as college basketball's top point guard.
