Arkansas junior Daryl Macon has pulled out of the NBA Draft and will return to the school for his senior year.
The 6-3 guard led the Razorbacks in assists and was second in scoring this season, averaging 13.4 points and 2.2 dimes, while guiding the team to a 26-10 record and the NCAA Tournament.
Macon also had a great game against national champion UNC in the Tournament, scoring 19 points in the loss.
“I just couldn’t let it go, I had to come back for one more year,” Macon wrote on arkansasrazorbacks.com. “I have the same feeling right now as I did when I first signed with Arkansas. It’s the greatest feeling in the world knowing I’m coming back to be a Razorback for another year.”
A JUCO transfer from Holmes Community College, Macon averaged 23.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.2 assists as a sophomore before coming to Arkansas.
A prep star at Parkview High School (Little Rock, Arkansas), Macon averaged 21.2 points on 40 percent shooting from three as a senior when he was named to the 6A All-State First Team.
