RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State forward Tracy Smith has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return to the Wolfpack for his senior season.
Smith had declared himself eligible for the draft, but he didn't hire an agent and had until Saturday to pull his name and retain his eligibility.
Smith's return is big news for coach Sidney Lowe. Smith led the Wolfpack with 16.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game last season, which made him a second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference pick.
With Smith back and a top-five national recruiting class, the Wolfpack looks poised for a strong run in Lowe's fifth season.
