Louisville’s men’s basketball team’s season came to an end this afternoon, as the Cardinals fell to Michigan State in the Elite Eight, 76-70.
Soon, it will be decision time for two of Rick Pitino’s underclassmen, junior forward Montrezl Harrell and sophomore guard Terry Rozier. Will they return to Louisville for another season or leave for the NBA?
It is widely assumed that Harrell will enter the draft. He participated in the Cardinals’ senior day festivities earlier this season, an obvious sign of his intentions. Rozier did not – which was unsurprising considering he’s just a sophomore – but he, like Harrell, is also considered to be a first-round prospect.
Following the loss to Michigan State, both players said they have yet to make a decision about their futures.
Montrezl Harrell and Terry Rozier said they have not made decisions on next season. Not the time.

NBADraft.net currently has Harrell going No. 13 overall in the 2015 NBA Draft, with Rozier going No. 19. Both players are likely to leave if they’re going to be picked that highly.
