Shawne is Gone 

CBS SportsLine.com wire is reporting that University of Memphis forward Shawne Williams, who led the Tigers to their first No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, will enter the NBA Draft.

The Conference USA Freshman of the Year declared for the draft on Thursday. The 6-foot-9 Williams averaged 14 points and 6.0 rebounds this season. The Tigers lost to UCLA in the finals of the Oakland regional.

Coach John Calipari said Williams is well-suited for the NBA. "Shawne is ready to take the next step in his professional basketball career without question," Calipari said.
