Syracuse forward C.J. Fair will return for his senior season, the school announced Wednesday in a release.

Fair had considered entering the NBA Draft. He would likely have been a second-round pick, and he could improve his draft stock with a strong season.

Fair led the Orange with 14.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game last year. He was second-team All-Big East and helped lead Syracuse to the Final Four.
