With a few simple words on Twitter, UK fans got a big dose of excitement this morning. Isaiah Briscoe announced on his Twitter account that he’ll be returning to Kentucky for a sophomore season.

The 6’3” guard entered his name into the NBA Draft and had until 11:59 pm tonight to withdraw. Most projections had him going undrafted, though there was some buzz late last week that he had impressed teams in an individual workout.

In a conversation with Evan Daniels of, Briscoe said, “There’s a better chance for my dream to come true. I feel like I’ll be able to showcase my talent and I trust Cal. I 100-percent know that Cal understands what he’s doing.”

As a freshman, Briscoe averaged 9.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.

Marcus Lee has still not made his decision.
