BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana's Victor Oladipo made it official Tuesday: He's headed to the NBA.

The junior, first-team All-American announced his decision during a news conference inside Assembly Hall.

Oladipo, who is on track to graduate in May, was the Hoosiers' second-leading scorer, averaging 13.6 points to go along with 6.3 rebounds per game.

Oladipo is currently projected as a top-six choice.

Indiana's sophomore centre, Cody Zeller, is expected to decide whether he will leave for the NBA as early as Wednesday.

Zeller led the team in scoring and rebounding as Indiana reached the No. 1 ranking for much of the year and advanced to the NCAA East Region semifinals, where they lost to Syracuse.
