: Colorado guard Richard Roby wants to follow half-brother Kenyon Martin to the NBA, forgoing his final two seasons of eligibility to enter the draft.
Roby, however, won't sign with an agent, allowing him to return to school if he determines he won't go high enough in the June 28 draft.
"I'm fully confident in my abilities and what I can do,'' Roby said. "If I have to come back here I wouldn't be sad. I would come back to a program where the coaches love me and the students love me. So it wouldn't hurt at all.''
Roby, 6-foot-6, averaged 17 points and 5.5 rebounds for the Buffaloes, whose season ended with a home loss in the NIT.
Roby said a decision about his NBA aspirations weighed on him the last several weeks, but he didn't blame that for a late-season swoon.
"It's always been in the back of my mind. You can't help when everybody keeps asking you,'' he said. "I wouldn't say it entirely affected the way I played because even when I was playing well it was still in the back of my mind.''
Roby said he consulted with Martin, who "agreed with this decision. Everybody I talked to really agreed with the decision.''
Martin told The Associated Press this season he wouldn't try to influence Roby's choice.
"I'm going to let him make that decision,'' Martin said. "But no matter what decision he makes, I'm going to be there for him.''
