Falling: William Buford 6-5 180 SG Ohio St. Fr. Nobody's stock took a bigger nosedive in the Sweet 16-Elite 8 rounds than Buckeye junior William Buford. He visibly froze up in the final minutes of the Sweet 16 match up with Kentucky. After looking very solid in the first two rounds, Buford struggled mightily with his outside shot. He shot a miserable 2-16 in their loss finishing with 9 points. Buford is a smooth 2G who stood to gain a lot from a Buckeye national title. He has announced he will return to Ohio State and will have a chance to revive his stock which appears to have dipped outside the first round. NBADraft.net
They got it well after the clock had swept into Saturday morning when junior William Buford and freshman Jared Sullinger, both considered likely candidates for early departure to the NBA, said they will be back at Ohio State for another season. "I'll be back," Buford said after first sounding indecisive in the highly emotional climate immediately following the game, which was played at the Prudential Center. "I just want to get better, so when I do go, I'll be prepared to make an impact and not just go to be a player in the league." Toledo Blade
