Florida State's Bacon withdraws from NBA draft consideration

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Dwayne Bacon says he will withdraw his name for the NBA draft and will return to Florida State for his sophomore season.

The 6-foot-7 guard made the announcement Monday night on his Twitter account, and a school spokesman confirmed the decision. Bacon said he made the decision after consulting further with his family and looking back at the season.

Bacon led the Seminoles in scoring (15.8 points) and rebounding (5.8) this past season. He set school freshman records in points (536) and field goals (197) as Florida State finished 20-14 and advanced to the second round of the NIT.

Bacon was named the Atlantic Coast Conference rookie of the week five times, the most of any player, and also made the All-Freshman team.
