VILLANOVA, Pa. -- Villanova junior forward Kris Jenkins has withdrawn his name from the 2016 National Basketball Association Draft and will return to the Wildcats for his senior season in 2016-17, it was announced Monday.

“It was a great experience for me to go through this process,” stated Jenkins. “I’m looking forward to concentrating on graduating next year and getting back to work with my teammates at Villanova.”

Jenkins enjoyed a sensational finish to his junior season of 2015-16, averaging 18.5 ppg over the Wildcats' last 14 games. He capped the campaign by dropping in the game-winning 3-point field goal as time expired to help Villanova defeat North Carolina 77-74 on April 4 to secure the school’s second NCAA title.

For the season, the 6-foot-6 forward finished second on the Wildcats in scoring at 13.6 ppg and also averaged 3.9 rpg while starting 38 times.
