Chapel Hill, N.C. North Carolina freshman forward Ed Davis said he would return to the team for the 2009-2010 season.
Davis made the announcement Sunday. In a statement, the 6-foot-10 native of Richmond, Va., said he would like to play in the NBA, but that he’s not ready to take that step. Davis also said he was glad to get the decision behind him so he could focus on the remainder of the school year.
He averaged 8.2 points and 5.5 rebounds in North Carolina’s six NCAA Tournament victories. Davis led the Tar Heels with 65 blocks for the season.
