Big Ten Freshman Stars Staying in School

By Sports

Michigan State Guard Gary Harris has chosen to return for his Sophomore season.

He became the first player in program history to be named Big Ten Freshman of the Year and to be voted MVP by his teammates. He averaged nearly 13 points a game, ranking second on the team.

Spartan Forward Adreian Payne has not announced whether he is entering the NBA draft or coming back for his senior season.

Michigan's Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary are also coming back to Michigan for their Sophomore seasons.

The Wolverines have lost National Player of the Year Trey Burke and Guard Tim Hardaway Jr. to the NBA draft, but now they can expect to return three starters from the team that reached the NCAA title game this season.

Robinson, the son of the former Purdue star with the same name, started all 39 games for Michigan this season and averaged 11 points. McGary's stock took off during the NCAA tournament, when he emerged as a force inside to help the Wolverines to their first Final Four since 1993.
