Over the last few months, the Kentucky Wildcats have a lost a good number of players to either the NBA Draft or to transfer. Isaiah Briscoe will not be one of them as he announced his return to the school for his sophomore season.
Briscoe had originally declared for the draft, but did not hire an agent, meaning he was eligible to withdraw and return to school. He took to Twitter to let everyone know he would be back for the 2016-17 season.
Isaiah Briscoe shot pretty poorly for his first season with the Wildcats only making 14 percent of his three-point shots and 46-percent of his free throws. However, he did averaged 9.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game on the season.
He should end up playing a much bigger role for Kentucky this season as he looks to help them improve on their disappointing performance in the 2016 NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats only reached the Round of 32 before falling to the Indiana Hoosiers.
