Kentucky guard Doron Lamb returning to school

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky freshman Doron Lamb will return for his sophomore season.

The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 12.3 points and shot 48 percent from 3-point range for the Wildcats while helping them to their first Final Four appearance in 13 years. He scored a then-school freshman record 32 points in a victory over Winthrop in December, a mark later broken by teammate Terrence Jones.

Lamb says the tough loss to Connecticut in the national semifinals and the addition of another top recruiting class next fall are the main reasons he decided to not enter the NBA draft.

It's still unclear whether Jones, freshman guard Brandon Knight and junior swingman DeAndre Liggins will return next fall. Underclassmen have until April 24 to enter their names in the draft.
