April 18, 2012

RALEIGH — Basketball standout C.J. Leslie is returning to North Carolina State for his junior season.

The school issued a statement saying Leslie would discuss his decision Wednesday afternoon during a scheduled press conference.

The 6-foot-8 forward averaged a team-best 14.7 points and added 7.3 rebounds per game.

He led the Wolfpack this season to a 24-13 record and its first NCAA tournament berth since 2006, then helped them pull two upsets to advance to the round of 16.

With his return, N.C. State figures to enter coach Mark Gottfried's second season as one of the favorites in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
