A day after declaring for the NBA Draft, Joel Berry has changed his mind. The North Carolina guard announced Tuesday he will return for his senior season in 2017-18. Berry is allowed to withdraw his name from the draft and return to school because he did not hire an agent. "I know I can continue to improve my game and be better prepared for the NBA after another year playing against the best college competition in the country," Berry said in a statement. "There’s no reason to rush leaving school. I love being a Tar Heel and love playing for Carolina and Coach (Roy) Williams. "My family and I have enjoyed every part of playing at Carolina. I am proud of what we have accomplished in my first three seasons as a Tar Heel and am excited about our team next year, the chance to continue to improve in all areas of the game and the opportunity to complete my education and earn my degree."
