Pondexter still considering NBA

Talked with Quincy Pondexter after practice today for a story that will turn in Saturday’s paper.
But among the things he said is that he will still consider leaving after this season for the NBA, even though his freshman year has at times seemed like more of a struggle than might have been anticipated given the hype surrounding his arrival.
“You have to consider it,” he said today. “You have to consider it no matter what because you never know. … You have to think about it. I think every player, every scholarship is (year-to-year) so you have to come back and think and re-evaluate your situation and see what’s best for you and your future and that’s what I plan to do after this season.”
Pondexter is still rated pretty highly on a lot of draft lists, though most of them have him pegged as a Class of 2008 player and not this season. Pondexter’s numbers have dropped off severely of late and he is averaging only 8.3 points in Pac-10 play. But he obviously has a lot of measurables that will attract NBA attention, and he showed his vast potential when he scored 25 against Arizona.
Still, I’d be pretty surprised if he’s not back next season.
