CU rising senior Davion Mintz, who declared for the NBA draft last month, will return to Creighton for his final season of college basketball.
Mintz confirmed his decision with The World-Herald Wednesday morning before posting about his decision on Twitter. Stadium’s Jeff Goodman was the first to report the news.
It was the expected outcome for the 6-foot-3 point guard from Charlotte, N.C. Mintz averaged 10.6 points per game against league competition and emerged as the Jays’ top perimeter defender last year, but his performances didn’t catch the attention of draft analysts and experts.
He said he declared for the draft to get exposed to the process and pick up feedback on his game from additional sources. Mintz spent portions of the past month training with other NBA draft hopefuls at a facility in Indianapolis.
After testing the NBA draft process, talking with my family, coaches and consistent prayer, I have decided that I will be returning to school for my senior season & complete my degree. Enjoyed my time during the draft process, developing my game and showing my upside. 1 is back pic.twitter.com/LiPMzWNIjM— Davion Mintz (@deemintz1) May 29, 2019
