Syracuse Basketball fans will have another familiar face on the court once the season gets started. Tyus Battle yesterday officially withdrew his name from the N-B-A draft … and plans to come back to school for his junior year. Battle spent the last few weeks getting assessed by pro teams, including attending the N-B-A combine.
He made visits and did workouts for several teams. He was considered by some analysts as likely to be a second-round draft pick. First round picks have guaranteed contracts, while in the second round, contracts and income are less certain.
