SEATTLE (AP) - Washington leading scorer C.J. Wilcox has bypassed a chance to enter the NBA draft and will return for his senior season.
The school made the announcement on Thursday. Many draft projections had Wilcox being taken in the second round.
Wilcox led the Huskies averaging 16.8 points per game, good for sixth in the Pac-12. He was a second-team all-Pac-12 selection and played most of the conference season while battling a foot injury. He topped 20 points in 14 games and was the Huskies' leading scorer in 22 of their 34 games.
Wilcox's return means the Huskies will lose only three starters off their squad that went 18-16 and lost in the first-round of the NIT to BYU.
