LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich say they're staying at Kansas instead of jumping to the NBA.
The decision by the Jayhawks' top two players to return to school makes Kansas an instant contender for the 2010 national championship.
The Jayhawks will return every major contributor from this year's Big 12 championship team and will likely be joined by one of the best recruiting classes coach Bill Self has brought to Kansas.
Collins and Aldrich announced their decision Monday night to cheers from several hundred fans at the annual Jayhawks awards dinner.
The point guard Collins averaged 18.9 points and five assists this past season as a junior.
The 6-foot-11 Aldrich averaged 14.9 points and 11.1 rebounds as a sophomore.
