Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Guard Todd Mayo has decided to forego his senior season at Marquette to pursue a professional basketball career.
Mayo averaged 11.3 points and 2.7 rebounds as a junior in 2013-14.
"We wish Todd nothing but the best and appreciate his contributions to the program, not only since I arrived at Marquette, but during his entire career," head coach Steve Wojciechowski said. "I completely understand his desire to continue his career at the professional level and support his decision."
The school said Mayo, who is the younger brother of Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo, leaves the university in good academic standing.
Mayo would have been the leading scorer returning to the team. He was third on the team in scoring last season, behind Davante Gardner and Jamil Wilson.
