As expected, guard Anderson Hunt of Nevada Las Vegas, the most valuable player in the 1990 NCAA Final Four and an all-tournament selection this year, is among 12 undergraduates who have applied for early entry in the NBA draft June 26.

The list, announced by the NBA on Thursday, includes All-Americans Kenny Anderson of Georgia Tech and Billy Owens of Syracuse. It also includes such virtual unknowns as Chancellor Nichols of James Madison, Raoul Hutchens of Whittier and Ty Moseler of Wisconsin Waukesha.

Hunt, a junior, hopes to join teammates Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon, Greg Anthony and George Ackles in the draft. They were seniors on a UNLV team that was undefeated until it lost to Duke in the NCAA semifinals.


The 6-foot-2 Hunt, who averaged 17.2 points a game last season, said his family’s financial situation was the main reason he decided to pass up his senior year.

Also applying for early entry were junior guard Terrell Brandon of Oregon, junior forward Brian Williams of Arizona, junior center Donald Hodge of Temple, junior forward Tony Farmer of Nebraska, sophomore Jerome Harmon of Louisville and Zan Tabak, a 6-11 center from Yugoslavia.
