All season long, Providence fans were aware that it was (likely) the last season Kris Dunn would be at the school, as the NBA would be his next destination.
On Sunday afternoon, Ben Bentil announced he would be remaining in the NBA Draft, as well. The news was confirmed by Bentil's mother.

Bentil currently sits 45th on DraftExpress' 2016 Mock Draft, with the 45th pick belonging to the Boston Celtics. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was at a handful of Providence games this season. Most thought Ainge was there to watch Dunn, but Bentil may be a beneficiary
Bentil led the Big East in scoring last season at 21.1 PPG, and added 7.7 rebounds per game.
