Jefferson, the 6-foot-9 forward who is on track to get his undergraduate degree in August, said Thursday he will stay and play his final season of eligibility.

After finally becoming a starter, Jefferson led the Big 12 Conference making 61 percent of his field goals (191 of 313) for the NIT champion Bears. He was 11th in the league with 13.3 points a game and fourth with 8.0 rebounds while starting all 37 games.

Jefferson started only one of his first 55 games. He spent his freshman season behind Ekpe Udoh, the sixth overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft. He redshirted before a year behind Quincy Acy, Perry Jones III and Quincy Miller, all NBA draft picks last June.
