Texas waiting for D.J. to decide whether to chase NBA dream

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Texas Longhorns are waiting.

They're waiting for sophomore All-American point guard D.J. Augustin to make up his mind: Will he stay in college for another season or bolt for the NBA?

Augustin, however, seems in no hurry to make up his mind. At last night's team banquet, Augustin said he's still evaluating, and will take his time.

He has until April 27 to submit his name. But if he doesn't hire an agent, he could still change his mind and pull out of the draft. If he signs with an agent, he'll lose his college eligibility.

Augustin averaged 19.2 points and 5.8 assists in leading Texas to one of the best seasons in school history. The Longhorns won a school-record 31 games, a share of the Big 12 regular season championship and advanced to the NCAA regional finals before losing to Memphis. Augustin won the Bob Cousy Award as college basketball's top point guard.
