In a move that should shock no one, Western Kentucky freshman center Charles Bassey has declared for the NBA draft on Thursday, but won't sign with an agent, leaving him the opportunity to return to Bowling Green for his sophomore season.

The 6-foot-11 native of Lagos, Nigeria and former five-star recruit lived up to the incoming hype, finishing the season as the Conference USA Freshman of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year.

For the season, Bassey averaged 14.6 points, 10 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game while shooting 62.7% from the floor. The Hilltoppers finished the season 20-14, losing to Old Dominion in the finals of the Conference USA tournament.
