Matthew Murrell withdraws from NBA Draft, returning to Ole Miss

Ole Miss guard Matthew Murrell announced Wednesday he is returning to Ole Miss men’s basketball for his fifth year.

“After carefully weighing my options, I’m excited to announce that I’m coming back to Ole Miss for another year,” Murrell wrote in a statement.

Murrell averaged 16.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game last season.
