LSU's Thomas leaving, Davis staying
BATON ROUGE, La. - LSU freshman forward Tyrus Thomas declared for the NBA draft Monday, while sophomore teammate and Southeastern Conference player of the year Glen Davis said he is coming back to the Tigers.
"When you're hot, you're hot," Thomas said of his decision, which comes just three weeks after he and Davis helped the Tigers make the Final Four.
Thomas, the conference's freshman of the year and co-defensive player of the year, signed with an agent Sunday night, a move that ended his college career.
Davis, the athletic and personable inside presence known as "Big Baby," said he still has unfinished business in college.
"There are a lot of things I want to accomplish, not only as a player but as a person," Davis said. "Furthermore, I feel that college is the best time of my life. I feel that staying at LSU will help me mentally and physically. I just want to make it clear that I will be here next year to further my education and to be with family members - my teammates."For more coverage of the LSU Tigers, check out TigerBait.com.
