COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Deshaun Thomas will not be joining Ohio
State teammate Jared Sullinger in the NBA -- yet.

Thomas said Friday he will return for his junior season. Two
days earlier, Sullinger, also a sophomore and a two-time
All-American, said he would give up his last two years of
eligibility to enter the NBA draft.

Coach Thad Matta said in a school statement that Thomas, his
family and the coaching staff spent the last week evaluating his
draft prospects.

The 6-foot-7 forward from Fort Wayne, Ind., averaged 15.9 points
and 5.4 rebounds for the Buckeyes, who went 31-8 and lost in the
national semifinals.
