Williams withdraws from NBA draft, will return to Purdue
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Purdue said Thursday that center Trevion Williams has decided to withdraw from the NBA draft and will return to campus for his senior season this fall. Williams was a first-team all-Big Ten selection last season and one of five finalists for the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award, which goes to the nation’s top college centeer, when he averaged 15.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists while recording 11 double-doubles. ”I would like to thank the organizations that gave me the time to work out for them and to go through this process with them the last couple of weeks,” Williams said.
