DAVIS AND AMINU TO STAY AT UNC AND WAKE FOREST

As expected, UNC forward Ed Davis will return for this sophomore season.

The school released a statement Sunday, saying the sixth man wanted to end all of the speculation about his future.

“I love being a student at Carolina and playing with my teammates for Coach (Roy) Williams,'' Davis said in a prepared statement. "I’d like to play in the NBA someday, but my family and I don’t think I’m ready to take that step. I’m glad this decision is behind me so I can focus on the rest of the school year and get ready to be a better player next season.”

Davis averaged 6.7 points and 6.6 rebounds for the Tar Heels.

Freshman forward Al-Farouq Aminu, widely expected to enter the NBA Draft in June, will return for his sophomore season at Wake Forest, the school's sports information office has announced.

"My family and I feel like now is not the right time," Aminu said in a statement released by Wake.

The 6-foot-9 forward from Norcross, Ga., who is listed among the top 15 picks in numerous mock drafts, averaged 12.9 points and 8.2 rebounds his freshman season.
