Swanigan headed to NBA, but Edwards returning to Purdue

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Big Ten player of the year Caleb Swanigan has decided to stay in this year's NBA draft.

The 6-foot-9 sophomore will become the first Purdue player to leave school early since Glenn Robinson was taken No. 1 overall in 1994.

Swanigan averaged 18.5 points and was second in the nation with 12.5 rebounds last season. The 2015 Indiana Mr. Basketball also led the nation in double-doubles.
