Amaker passes on Miami, will stay at Harvard

Tommy Amaker decided to remain at Harvard after meeting with Miami officials on Monday, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Tuesday.

FoxSports.com first reported the news.

Miami was willing to offer Amaker a five-year deal worth roughly $1.1 million, according to the Miami Herald. The school's search could now turn a number of different directions. Mike Davis (UAB), Rob Jeter (Wisconsin-Milwaukee), Donnie Jones (UCF), Tony Barbee (Auburn) and Billy Kennedy (Murray State) are among the possible candidates. Sources have told CBSSports.com that Frank Martin (Kansas State) would be willing to take the job if Miami committed additional resources to its basketball program, but Miami officials have not pursued the Miami native even though most believe he's the only candidate with the ability to make the Hurricanes nationally relevant immediately.

Miami is trying to replace Frank Haith.

He left earlier this month to take over at Missouri.

Butler's Mack in draft ... at least for now

Butler's Shelvin Mack is declaring for the NBA Draft, but whether he'll remain in it past next month's deadline to withdraw remains unclear, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Tuesday.

Mack has no immediate plans to hire an agent.

The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 16.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists this season while leading Butler to its second consecutive NCAA tournament title game. The Kentucky native is projected as a borderline first-round pick, though he could be aided by underclassmen like North Carolina's John Henson, Baylor's Perry Jones and Ohio State's Jared Sullinger already announcing that they will return to school.

The deadline to withdraw from the NBA Draft is May 8.
