UM, MSU players return for senior year after testing NBA
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Men’s basketball players from the University of Montana and Montana State are returning for their senior seasons after testing their prospects in the NBA Draft.
Guard Tyler Hall is returning to Montana State and point guard Ahmaad Rorie is returning to Montana.
Hall withdrew from the draft on Wednesday. He led MSU with 17.5 per game last season and holds the Bobcats’ career record with 312 made 3-pointers.
Rorie announced he was returning to UM last week. He averaged 17.2 points and 3.7 assists as a junior, leading Montana to the Big Sky Conference regular season and tournament championship and a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
Both players declared for the draft without hiring agents so they could explore their options while retaining their college eligibility as long as they withdrew from the draft by May 30.
