BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Forward Darius Days is returning to LSU for his senior season after initially exploring his opportunity to turn pro.
Days, who announced his decision during an online talk show appearance in Baton Rouge on Tuesday, had previously declared his intention to enter this summer's NBA draft after last season. However, he did not hire an agent or otherwise relinquish his college eligibility.
Days started 28 of LSU's 29 games last season, helping 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. He made 51.9 percent of his field goal attempts and shot 40 percent from 3-point range.
