North Carolina junior Tyler Zeller and sophomore John Henson will return to the Tar Heels next season instead of entering their names in the NBA draft.

The school announced the pair's decision Wednesday, but says freshman Harrison Barnes "is still reviewing information" as he considers whether to enter the draft.

Zeller, a 7-footer, averaged a team-high 15.7 points to go with 7.2 rebounds. Henson, a lean 6-foot-10 forward, averaged about 12 points and 10 rebounds as the team's top interior defender.

Both were second-team all-ACC picks as the Tar Heels won the league regular-season championship and reached an NCAA regional final.

In a statement, coach Roy Williams says Barnes "is not as far along" in the process.
