Indiana sophomore forward Troy Williams intends to return to school for his junior season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports (Twitter link). The 20-year-old helped the Hoosiers to a record of 20-14, and a second round ouster in the NCAA tournament, courtesy of Wichita State.
The second-year swingman is likely to improve his draft stock by returning to Indiana for another season of development. Williams was a projected second round pick if he declared for the 2015 draft. Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com slots Williams as the No. 46 overall prospect, while Chad Ford of ESPN.com (Insider subscription required) rates him 50th overall.
In 32 appearances for the Hoosiers this season, the 6’7″ Williams logged 13.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 27.6 minutes per game. Williams’ career averages through two seasons are 10.2 PPG, 5.9 RPG, and 1.5 APG. His career shooting numbers are .529/.286/.716.
