North Carolina freshman Ed Davis, who scored 11 points and grabbed eight rebounds in Monday night's 89-72 rout of Michigan State in the NCAA national championship game at Ford Field, said he'll definitely return to school for his sophomore season.

Davis, a 6-foot-10 forward from Richmond, Va., averaged 6.5 points and 6.5 rebounds this season. Some UNC fans feared Davis would do what sixth man Marvin Williams did when the Tar Heels won the 2005 national championship. Williams entered the NBA draft and was the No. 2 overall selection by the Atlanta Hawks.

Davis said he won't even consider testing the NBA draft without signing with an agent.

"I'm definitely coming back," Davis said.

Think about what it would be like if Lawson and Ellington decided to stay. Don't see why they would, they can't better their position by staying, but I'd love to see them stay to try to get another one. And with what we've got Hansbrough or no, we'd have a good shot...

Lawson & Ellington's stock is especially high considering this years draft class is pretty lame!

I was hoping Davis would leave. That guy is going to be a monster.

Damn good player, no doubt. But I imagine he wants to raise his stock a bit by actually being a starter for a year...

In the locker room after the game, he said he planned on staying for four years.....I don't believe it, but he said it.

That's bad news for other ACC teams and I'm with you, I don't know how he will stick to that one. There's just too much money staring him in the face...
