Texas star D.J. Augustin declared for the NBA draft Wednesday, and was joined by teammate A.J. Abrams, Kansas' Mario Chalmers and Memphis' Antonio Anderson and Robert Dozier.

Augustin, who won the Bob Cousy Award as college basketball's top point guard, averaged 19.2 points and 5.8 assists as a sophomore and is widely considered a first-round pick.

"I have dreamed of playing in the NBA since I was a little boy, and I am ready to start living this dream," Augustin said.

Him and Abrams were two of my favorite college players....hopefully they go somewhere that I can root for them.

I found out later that Abrams is declaring too! This really sucks. Every time Texas gets a team built, we have guys leaving early. We could have won a championship with Durant, Aldridge, Gibson, and Augustin.
