WASHINGTON -- Jeff Green and Roy Hibbert, who led Georgetown to its first Final Four since the 1980s, will announce Wednesday whether they will keep their names in the NBA draft.

The two juniors submitted their names as early entry draft candidates last month. At the time, Green said there was a "70-30" chance he would return for his senior season, while Hibbert said he was "50-50."

Both players had said they would play four years for Georgetown, and the Hoyas would be one of the preseason favorites to win the national championship if both return.

However, both could be influenced by mock drafts that have both projected as possible top 10 picks. They had said that their value in this year's draft -- as compared to their possible value next year -- would be a strong factor in whether they turn pro.

Green and Hibbert have until June 18 to withdraw their names if they haven't signed with an agent. The draft is June 28.
