Purdue’s Carsen Edwards announced this evening that he is returning to Purdue for his Junior season.  Carsen announced his plans to enter the NBA Draft and after some workouts and advice from scouts, Edwards withdrew and will be back on the court this fall for the Boilermakers.

Edwards led the Boilermakers in scoring at 18.5 points per game, while contributing 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game, shooting 97 of 239 (.406) from long distance.
