Thomas-NBA

WACO, Texas (AP) _ Baylor forward Harvey Thomas has decided to forgo his senior season and declare for the NBA draft.

Thomas, a 6-foot-8 transfer from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, averaged 15.6 points and 5.5 rebounds last season. He was named to the All-Big 12 third team and the conferences All-Newcomer squad by The Associated Press.

``I enjoyed the opportunity to play at Baylor University and I want to thank everyone involved in my growth as a player and as a person,'' Thomas said in a statement released by the school.

Baylor endured a painful season that included self-imposed penalties stemming from major NCAA violations under former coach Dave Bliss. Thomas missed Baylor's first eight games while a university compliance committee investigated whether he had received an extra benefit in violation of NCAA regulations. The NCAA cleared him to play.

``We want to thank Harvey for helping make our team competitive this past season and helping us surpass expectations,'' coach Scott Drew said.
