Columbia, Mo. - Missouri guard Kim English announced that he has withdrawn from the 2011 NBA Draft and will return to Mizzou for his senior season.

English, already a 1,000-point scorer for the Tigers, has been a key figure in Missouri winning 77 games the last three seasons, while helping his club to three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. A native of Baltimore, Md., the 6-foot-6 guard ranks among Missouri's all-time leaders with 161 career three-pointers and has 1,063 career tallies.

"Putting my name into the draft allowed me to get some meaningful information that will help me grow as a player," English said. "It was a positive experience for me and it has me excited for my senior season."

English was one of five Tigers to average double figures in scoring last season, averaging 10.0 points, while shooting 37 percent from three-point range. English was also third on the club with 67 assists and was fourth with 42 steals.

With the return of English and fellow senior-to-be Laurence Bowers, Missouri will return 10-of-11 letter winners from last season's 23-11 campaign.
