Basketball: Will former Schenley standout Kane be an NBA draft pick?

Written by Brad Everett on .

DeAndre Kane unquestionably had a sensational senior season of college basketball.

The question looming now is will Kane be taken in the NBA draft.

Kane, a Schenley graduate, was tremendous in his only season at Iowa State after transferring from Marshall. Kane averaged 17.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. Kane was named first-team all-Big 12 and the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year, as well as an honorable mention selection on the Associated Press All-American team.

Those statistics and accolades would lead one to believe that Kane is projected to be taken highly in the NBA draft on June 26, but that's not the case. Kane has one major fact going against him -- age.
