MURRAY, Ky. (AP) Murray State sophomore guard Cameron Payne will forego his final two seasons to enter the NBA draft.

The Memphis native earned honorable mention for The Associated Press All-American team after leading the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring at 20.2 points per game last season. Payne ranked 13th nationally in scoring and assists (6.0 per game).

Payne was voted OVC Player of the Year and chosen Lute Olson National Player of the Year. The Racers (29-6) reached the NIT quarterfinals this season before losing 72-69 to Old Dominion on a last-second 3-pointer; they won the CollegeInsider.com tournament last season.
