USC forward Bennie Boatwright announced on Thursday that he will withdraw from the NBA draft and return for his junior season. Boatwrights announcement means the Trojans will return almost all of their roster from last seasons NCAA tournament team.

Previously, forward Chimezie Metu said he would forgo entering the NBA draft and guard Elijah Stewart changed his mind and also opted to return. Only guard Shaqquan Aaron remains declared for the draft, though he hasnt hired an agent and is eligible to return.

The return of USCs front court is the best-case scenario for Coach Andy Enfield, who has stewarded USC to two straight NCAA tournament appearances despite a roster with a striking absence of depth and experience.
