Singler undecided about returning for senior season

INDIANAPOLIS -- Duke junior Nolan Smith said after his team's national championship victory over Butler on Monday night that he plans to return to Durham for his senior season.

Junior Kyle Singler -- the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four -- has not yet decided.

"No idea,'' Singler, who scored 19 points, said when asked about next year.

"I'll just talk to coach and get his opinion, talk to my family. ... I'm just going to let myself be open to what Coach has to say, because he has my best interest [at heart]."

Underclassmen have until April 25 to enter their names into the draft, and until May 8 to pull out -- as long as they don't hire an agent.

Smith, who scored 13 points in the title game, said, "I'm definitely not even considering going. Unless somebody said, 'Nolan, you're going to be the No. 1 pick,' and John Wall has that on lock.

"This squad, coming in next year ... it could be something special. Back-to-back champs could be our future."

Love the sour grapes!! I was pulling for Duke to win mainly because I knew how much it would upset petty Carolina fans!! Do it again in 2011 Duke!

I know that this is really cliche', but Singler really looks like a Larry Bird type of player. I know, I know, a lot of white guys get that label, but he is well rounded in different areas. He can hit the running jump shot, is deadly accurate when squared up, has long arms to block alot of shots, plays decent defense, and is real competitive like Larry. He certainly is better than the previous, "Larry Bird" type of player Adam Morrison. Just my opinion though.
P.S. I am a Carolina fan, and it pains me to complement him

Only an idiotic Tar Hole fan would have the ignorance to call the guys who just won the National Championship "losers." Every time I think Heels fans can't get any dumber, someone goes out and just has to prove me wrong.

When the Blue Devils plane comes home today, they're planning on dumping the airplane's toilets straight down Franklin Street before they land. I just hope they save enough for Roy's house, too. Ha ha ha eat it Tarholes, eat it

Anonymous said go, heels. Those holes already went! They could not even win the NIT!! Do not expect more from the holes next year. After that, your Roy boy will be gone. The holes are only losing Ginyard and one other - both of whom did NOTHING this year. So, you sound like very poor losers, hole.

The Tar Heels suck. Just face it. Duke beat you by 32 and there is no way in hell that Carolina will ever beat Duke by that much. Stop crying Tar Heel fans. Face it DUKE IS THE CHAMPS AND WILL WIN IT AGAIN NEXT YEAR!!!All Tar Heel fans do is CRY like Babies. Why dont all you loser Tar Heel fans go and do your stupid Jr. High cheer to each other and dance around like idiots. Maybe that will make you feel better. LOSERS!!

Kyle is one of the toughest SOB's to ever play for Duke. Its been awesome to watch his development over the past 3 years. Regardless of is he stays or goes (I think he should and will go), nobody can take away what a remarkable accomplishment this team achieved. NATIONAL CHAMPIONS BABY!!!!!!!
