Magic select Oladipo with No. 2 pick in NBA draft

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Orlando Magic have selected Indiana guard Victor Oladipo with the second pick in the NBA draft.

   The 6-foot-4 Oladipo was a first-team AP All-American after averaging 13.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists as a junior, leading the Hoosiers to their first outright Big Ten regular-season championship in 20 years. He set Indiana's record for steals in a season (78) and led the Big Ten with a .599 field goal percentage.

   The Magic are coming off an NBA-worst 20-62 season after six straight playoff seasons and a trip to the NBA Finals in 2009.

   Oladipo, who played at DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Md., is the Magic's first draft pick in the top 10 since they selected Dwight Howard first overall in 2004.
