Singletary had to declare by this
Sunday to be eligible to be selected -
but he has NOT hired an agent yet.

So, should he change his mind, he
could still come back to UVA.

The talented guard has been a
first- team all-ACC selection each of
the past two seasons.

The NBA draft is on June 28th.

(STANDUP: Cameron's ability to turn
around a game was on display earlier

this season against Lynchburg with the
Maroons trailing by 4 goals with less
than a minute to play, Cameron won 4
straight face-offs including the first
in overtime, then scored the game
winning goal. If Lynchburg had won a
single face-off in that stretch, the
Maroons would have come up short.

celebrate the 10th anniversary of the

territory's handover back to China.

Chinese state T-V reports the
pandas--both born in August 2005-- are
ready for their trip tomorrow.

The Hong Kong government is then
expected to choose names for the
pandas.

And so far, officials say the two are
getting along...
