COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina freshman guard A.J. Lawson has withdrawn his name from the NBA draft.
Lawson announced his choice on Tuesday, a day before the deadline for those who want to return to college to pull out of the draft pool.
Lawson is a 6-foot-6, 172-pound guard from Toronto, Canada, who was the Gamecocks' second-leading scorer at 13.4 points a game. He was selected to the all-Southeastern Conference freshman team.
