Ohio State's Greg Oden Will Enter NBA Draft, Says Dad

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A newspaper reports that the father of Ohio
State star Greg Oden says he will enter the N-B-A draft.

Greg Oden Senior told The Indianapolis Star in a story on its
Web site last night that he is comfortable with his son's decision.

The seven-foot center is widely considered a possible Number One
draft pick.

Oden and Buckeyes point guard Mike Conley Junior led Lawrence
North of Indianapolis to three straight Indiana high school
basketball titles. As freshmen this season, they led Ohio State to
a Number One ranking and the N-C-A-A championship game.

The players have until midnight on April 29th to declare whether
they intend to make themselves available for the N-B-A draft.
Oden's mother, Zoe, told the Star that her son told her he
wasn't ready to talk about it just yet.
