Cougars leading scorer Franks returning for senior year

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) Washington State leading scorer Robert Franks has decided to withdraw from the NBA draft and will return for his senior season.

Franks, the Pac-12's Most Improved Player last season, announced Wednesday that he would return.

Franks declared for the draft in March but did not hire an agent. His return is good news for Washington State, which lost Drick Bernstine to graduation and point guard Malachi Flynn to a transfer.
