James Michael McAdoo has decided to return to Chapel Hill for his sophomore season, putting the NBA on hold. 

In a released statement McAdoo said, "Every young basketball player wants to have as much information about his future and understand what others in the game think about him. It's been interesting to learn the information that Coach Williams has gathered, but I am ready to continue as a Tar Heel."

McAdoo was thought to have been a projected first round pick in the NBA draft had he declared. His return gives the Tar Heels a solid inside scoring presence.
