Marcus Paiges Announces He Will Return on Twitter

Sophomore Guard Marcus Paige announced on Twitter earlier tonight that he will be returning for his junior season. North Carolina was just coming off its loss to Iowa State in the Round of 32, and Paige could have declared for the NBA Draft if he wanted to. But Paige was excited to get to work and to improve his game this offseason for the next season of Carolina Basketball.

UNC recruit Theo Pinson was happy to hear the news:

Paige responded that he never even thought about leaving:

Finally, Ryan Switzer was also happy to see his fellow UNC Student Athlete return for another year at Carolina.

Paige’s response:

Paige’s return is great news for the 2014-15 UNC Basketball squad. He averaged 17.4 points and 4.3 assists as a sophomore last season. NC State, Duke and the rest of the ACC better watch out for what Paige and the Tar Heels can do next season.
