Shipp to Announce His Return
According to the Los Angeles Daily News, UCLA junior swingman Josh Shipp will announce that he intends to withdraw from the NBA Draft and return to the Bruins for his senior season. His mother, Debbie, said the reason for his return is his quest for a championship. "He'll make an announcement real soon," she said. "He's still chasing that national title. In the next day or so he'll say something." Shipp, who averaged 12.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per game last season, is one of four Bruins who declared for the draft. Kevin Love and Russell Westbrook are likely lottery selections and will probably keep their names in the draft pool, while Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is expected to return.
