Matthews forgoes NBA Draft, will return to Michigan

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan's Charles Matthews is removing his name from consideration for the NBA draft.
   Matthews announced his decision Wednesday, saying he's learned a lot through this process. He says he'll now focus on finishing his education at Michigan and leading his teammates to more success next season. The Wolverines made it to the NCAA title game this year before losing to Villanova .
   Michigan already lost big man Moe Wagner, who left early for the draft. Matthews declared for the draft without hiring an agent, but he's now withdrawing.
   The 6-foot-6 Matthews averaged 13 points a game this past season, his first with the Wolverines after transferring from Kentucky and sitting out a season. He has two seasons of college eligibility remaining.
