Tyus Battle Returning To Syracuse

Syracuse swingman Tyus Battle will return to the Orange for another season, tweets Jeff Goodman of ESPN.

Battle was an iron man at Syracuse in his sophomore season, leading all of Division I by playing 39.0 minutes per game. He posted a line of 19.2/2.9/2.1 while earning second-team All-ACC honors.

He appears at No. 40 in the list of top 100 prospects compiled by ESPN’s Jonathan Givony and was projected as the 40th pick by the Nets in Givony’s latest mock draft.

Battle’s reported workouts were with the Clippers, Nets, Magic, Lakers and Knicks.
