Duke's Kyle Singler to stay in school for senior year

Apr 19, 2010, 10:10 PM EDT

The man who led Duke to a national championship has decided to stay in school for one more year and bask in the glory.

Kyle Singler announced that he is returning to school for his senior season.

“I love being here at Duke  and am excited about next year,” Singler said. “I had two great options in front of me, but I did not want to miss out on all of the great things to come in a senior season.”

Singler averaged 17.7 points and 7 rebounds per game, plus shot 40 percent from three last season. Most draft projections had him going late in the first round. This has helped some people climb the draft board as they have added to their games, but a lot of seniors also have had scouts really pick apart the details of their game and their stock has fallen in that extra year.

    Hey Kyle you have absolutely no damn reason to stay at Duke if you want to have any type of NBA career.
    Your team doesn’t have a shot at the sweet 16 next season. You had a bunch of rose pedals laid down for you in last years NCAA tourney so your team didn’t have to play teams like Kentucky, Syracuse, and Kansas causing you too look much better in the tourney then you really are. Your the MVP of the NCAA finals because your coach paid off the refs, and your projected as a top 20 pick. Why the hell do you want to stay at Duke, if you stay mark my words you will be a second round pick at best that will never make anywhere near what you would have made if you would have gone out for the draft early. But either way in the end you would have sit the bench for some crappy D-League team no one cares about.
    Bottom line
    Next season Kyle Singler will be shut down by other teams next season when he misses Zu and Scheyer causing him to go from being a top 20 draft selection to late second round.
