Marshall's Jon Elmore withdraws name from NBA draft
HUNTINGTON, WV (AP) —
Marshall guard Jon Elmore has withdrawn his name from the NBA draft.
Marshall announced Elmore's decision Wednesday to return for the 2017-18 season.
Elmore had announced in March that he would enter the draft and not hire an agent.
The 6-foot-3 Elmore led Conference USA with 19.7 points and 5.9 assists per game this season.
Marshall says Elmore will have two years of eligibility remaining. The school says one year of eligibility was restored after he received a release from his original letter of intent signed out of high school.
