IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Peter Jok will return to Iowa men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.

University officials announced Friday that the shooting guard has decided to stay on the team for his senior year. Coach Fran McCaffery says Jok's senior leadership will play a key role for the team next season.

Jok averaged 16.1 points a game for the Hawkeyes last season and was a second-team All-Big Ten selection.
