For those wondering, I have the reason right here.

Dominic had a great season as a rookie, and was in the early season as a sophomore. But, his life soon changed. Dominic found that he was going to be a father.

Nora James was born on February 7, 2007, the same night that James had a game. The reason that Dominic entered himself for the draft was that he wanted to take care of his family and so that Nora didn't have the struggle that he had growing up. He put his name in the draft, and entered in without an agent. He searched around for teams that were interested in him, and when he found that they weren't, he came back to Marquette.
