Monte’ Morris announced on Friday morning that he will be returning to school for his senior season.

“Ultimately, it came down to wanting to accomplish a number of things, with earning my degree and continuing my development as a basketball player my top priorities,” Morris said in the release. “I want to get stronger and become the best basketball player I can before becoming a professional, and I feel another year at Iowa State can help me do that.”

As a junior, Morris averaged 13.9 points, 6.9 assists and 4.0 boards playing for a Cyclone team that reached the Sweet 16. With Georges Niang, Abdel Nader and Jameel McKay graduating, Morris will have to shoulder the majority of the load next season.
