Forward Rui Hachimura will return to Gonzaga next season
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Forward Rui Hachimura has decided to return for his junior year at Gonzaga.
Hachimura said in a news release Sunday that he was looking forward to improving his game.
The 6-foot-8 native of Japan was one of Gonzaga’s most exciting players this season, despite coming off the bench, and had been listed on several NBA mock drafts.
Hachimura averaged 11.6 points in 20.7 minutes per game and led the Zags with 12.9 points in West Coast Conference games.
Gonzaga forward Killian Tillie hasn’t announced if he’s returning or testing the NBA waters.
