Villanova’s Kris Jenkins withdraws from NBA draft, will return to school
Villanova basketball star Kris Jenkins will withdraw from the NBA draft and return to school to play his senior season, he announced on Twitter on Monday.
Jenkins made a buzzer-beating three-point shot in this year’s NCAA tournament championship game to give the Wildcats a victory over North Carolina.
The 6'6" forward led his team in three-pointers (100) last season while averaging 13.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.
It was a good experience going through this process but I’m looking forward to focusing on graduating next year and becoming a great leader.— Kris Jenkins (@Smoove2you_) May 3, 2016
The NBA draft takes place on June 23 in New York.
