Michigan guard Caris LeVert will return for senior season

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan guard Caris LeVert said Tuesday he will return for his senior season after a year cut short by injury.

LeVert says the move will allow him time to develop as a player and work toward his degree.

LeVert was leading the team in scoring (14.9 points per game), rebounds (4.9), assists (3.7), steals (1.7) and minutes (35.8) when he was injured after 18 games last season.

In 88 games, including 56 starts, he has scored 823 points for the Wolverines.
