Dunn to Baylor: I'm coming back

Lacedarius Dunn announced his decision to remain at Baylor for his senior season, being one of the few elite players in college basketball this season to say no to the NBA, for now.

It's never easy to win the hearts and minds of an entire fan base, but Lacedarius Dunn did just that on Thursday when he told the Baylor faithful he was coming back to play at Baylor for his senior year. Dunn, who has the chance to become Baylor's all time leading scorer, will likely be one of the frontrunners coming into next season for Big 12 player of the year honors.

After fans were disappointed just a few days before when junior forward Ekpe Udoh declared for the NBA draft, they were extremely pleased to find out Lace Dunn would be returning to lead their team again for one more year.

Joined by returning key returning players such as Quincy Acy, Anthony Jones, and A.J. Walton and further impacted by incoming 5 star recruit and McDonald's All American Perry Jones and other newcomers Stargell Love and Bakari Turner, Baylor has a chance to once again be very dangerous in the Big 12 and challenge for the conference title.
