Div. I scoring leader Williams to enter draft

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Division I scoring leader Reggie Williams
plans to skip his senior season at Virginia Military Institute and
enter the NBA draft.

Williams, a 6-foot-5 forward who averaged 28.1 points, said
Tuesday he will not hire an agent. He will have until June 18 to
withdraw his name if he hopes to return to the Keydets. The NBA
draft is June 28 in New York.

"I felt that I had a successful season and I would like to
explore my options at the next level," said Williams, adding he
intends to return to VMI to get his degree.

Williams set Big South Conference and VMI records for points
this season. He had four games of 40 or more points and 15 games of
30 or more points. Williams is third in VMI history with 1,861
points.
