South Carolina forward Chris Silva withdraws from NBA draft

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina's leading scorer and rebounder Chris Silva is withdrawing from the NBA draft and returning to the Gamecocks for his senior year.

The 6-foot-9 forward from Gabon, South Carolina, was named to the all-Southeastern Conference first team after averaging 14.3 points and eight rebounds last season. He declared for the draft last month and met with several NBA teams. Silva was not part of the league's draft combine last week.

Silva thanked the teams he met with and said Monday he's anxious to return to practice with his college teammates.
