Florida 04's to forgo senior season



GAINESVILLE -- The 04's are no more.

Taurean Green, Joakim Noah, Al Horford and Corey Brewer will forgo their senior seasons and enter the NBA, they announced Thursday afternoon.

"They've made a decision to forego their senior season and enter the NBA," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "I do not expect any of them back next year. ... The way I view it, Monday night in Atlanta was the last time I'll coach these guys."

"The last three years have been an unbelievable experience," Noah said.

Donovan called Thursday both a happy day and a sad one.

"I couldn't be any happier or prouder of them, but (I'm) sad I won't get a chance to coach them anymore this year," Donovan said.
