BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Forward Darius Days is returning to the LSU men’s basketball team for his senior season after initially exploring his opportunity to turn pro.

Days announced his decision during an online talk show appearance in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Tuesday.

He’d previously declared his intention to enter this summer’s NBA draft. But he did not hire an agent or otherwise relinquish his college eligibility.

Days started 28 of LSU’s 29 games last season. He helped the Tigers advance to the SEC Tournament final for the first time since 1993 and win a first-round NCAA tournament game.  

He averaged 11.6 points and a team-high 7.8 rebounds a game.
