It appears as if the Marcus Domask era with Saluki men's basketball is over.

One of the program's all-time greats announced Wednesday on social media his plans to enter his name into the NBA Draft process while maintaining his college eligibility.

He will also put his name into the transfer portal with the option to play at another school next season if the NBA isn't in the cards. Domask has one-year of college eligibility remaining.

This past season, Domask became just the fourth Saluki to be named a First Team Academic All-American.

He and Darren Brooks are the only two Salukis to have at least 1,600 points, 500 rebounds and 300 assists in their careers.

On Tuesday, Saluki guard Dalton Banks announced he was entering the transfer portal, which gives him the option to play at another school next season.
