UCLA star Juzang returning for junior season
NCAA Tournament star Johnny Juzang will withdraw from the NBA draft pool and return to UCLA for his junior season, he announced Wednesday.
The 6-foot-6 guard averaged 16 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in 2020-21, including 22.8 points per game during the Bruins' run to the Sweet 16.
Juzang's 137 total points are the second most by a UCLA player in a single NCAA Tournament, trailing only Gail Goodrich's 140 points in 1965.
The Bruins went 22-10 in 2020-21, the second winning season under head coach Mick Cronin in as many years.
