Guard injured knee during 2004-05 season

SEATTLE – Washington guard Brandon Roy, who helped the
Huskies to the Pac-10 tournament title and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA
tournament, will return to school for his senior season.

"I wanted to give the team my total attention," Roy said
Monday at a news conference. "I knew to declare for the NBA draft,
I'd have to be away from them to do some camps. I knew it would
hurt the team, so I've decided to return."

Two weeks ago, Washington's Nate Robinson decided to give up his senior season and made himself eligible for the NBA draft.

Roy, a 6-foot-6 swingman, initially applied for the NBA draft
coming out of Garfield High School in Seattle.

With his decision to return, the Huskies will return three of
their top five scorers from last season's team, which went 29-6 and
reached the NCAA tournament's Round of 16.
