CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina freshman forward Ed Davis says he will return to the team for the 2009-2010 season.
Davis made the announcement on Sunday. In a statement issued by the school, the 6-foot-10 native of Richmond, Va., said he would like to play in the NBA, but that he and his family don't think he is ready to take that step.
Davis also said he was glad to get the decision behind him so he can focus on the remainder of the school year and get ready for next season.
He averaged 8.2 points and 5.5 rebounds in North Carolina's six NCAA tournament wins. Davis led the Tar Heels with 65 blocked shots.
In the 89-72 championship game victory over Michigan State, Davis scored 11 points and a team-high eight rebounds.
