It appears junior forward Rodrick Rhodes of Kentucky will make himself available for this year's NBA draft. "After speaking with him, I think that's the last game we'll see of Rodrick Rhodes," Kentucky Coach Rick Pitino said. Rhodes finished his junior season Saturday with a poor performance against North Carolina, making only two of 10 shots in a 74-61 loss. For the year, he averaged 12.9 points and 3.7 rebounds. . . .

Moore averaged 20.1 points, 10.6 rebounds and 3.1 blocked shots per game last season, playing mostly at center.
