North Carolina junior Justin Jackson entering NBA draft

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina's Justin Jackson accomplished his goals when he returned to Chapel Hill last season, both by improving his shot for the NBA level and helping the Tar Heels win a national championship.

Now the first-team Associated Press All-American is hiring an agent and entering the NBA draft.

The school announced Jackson's decision Thursday, 10 days after the Tar Heels won their sixth NCAA title by beating Gonzaga in Glendale, Arizona. The Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year is projected as a first-round pick, with some mock drafts putting him at the edge of the lottery.
