On Wednesday morning, Gonzaga forward Killian Tillie announced he is returning for his junior season and will not pursue any professional basketball outlets.

As a sophomore, Tillie averaged 12.9 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, earning All-West Coast Conference Second Team honors.

He was also named Most Outstanding Player of the WCC Tournament as he scored 72 points in three games on 28-of-36 shooting, including 13 of 14 beyond the arc.

“After reviewing options with my family, I’ve decided to stay at Gonzaga,” Tillie said in a statement. “I’m excited to continue my college career. I love playing here and being a part of the amazing culture at GU. I’m anxious to play another season under great coaches with a great group of teammates. And, I can’t forget to mention how great it is to play in front of the Kennel Club and all of our Zag fans.”
