With the deadline to withdraw from the draft looming, Louisville’s Deng Adel announced his return for his junior season. At a press conference just a few hours later, head coach Rick Pitino said Adel worked out for seven different teams. Pitino said doing so helped Adel evaluate his goals for his junior season.

Adel ended the year scoring over 15 points per game in five of his final six games, helping his average increase to 12.1 points per game. Adel also finished with just under five rebounds per game last year.
