ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III are skipping their last two seasons at Michigan to enter the NBA draft and chase a dream they've had since they were kids.
Stauskas, who is from Mississauga, Ontario, set his sights on joining in the world's best basketball league when he started playing the game in an organized way at the age of 7.
"From that point on, I pretty much committed myself to doing whatever it took to get to this point," he said. "I don't think many Canadian kids had that same dream. I think most of them were trying to go to the NHL, but I think the rise of Canadian basketball has been unbelievable. You see a lot of kids now making that jump from Canada and I'm glad to be a part of that group."
