Vols' Jordan McRae enjoys testing himself against best


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's Jordan McRae says he watched last week's NBA draft without regret.

McRae passed up an opportunity to enter the draft and instead returned to school for his senior season. The 6-foot-5 guard hasn't looked back since.

This summer has helped reinforce McRae's belief that he made the right decision. Although he won't begin his pro career for another year, McRae already is getting the opportunity to work alongside 2 of the NBA's greatest players.

McRae spent last week at the Kevin Durant Skills Academy, an invitation-only gathering in Washington that attracts the nation's top college wings. Now he's been invited to the LeBron James Skills Academy, a 4-day event starting Friday in Las Vegas that features 80 of the nation's best high school players and 20 top college performers.
