Louisville forward Earl Clark will stay with the Cardinals next season rather than enter the NBA Draft.
The sophomore originally said he would bypass his final two years with the Cardinals following Louisville's loss to North Carolina in the South Region finals of the NCAA tournament. Clark, however, did not sign with an agent or complete the necessary paperwork to declare for the draft, allowing him to return.
Clark averaged 11.1 points and a team-high 8.1 rebounds for the Cardinals, who went 27-9 and finished second in the Big East.
Coach Rick Pitino, who previously stated Clark would never play again for the Cardinals after Clark declared for the draft, said he's delighted with Clark's decision.
