Virginia point guard Sean Singletary said yesterday he "absolutely" will return for his senior season rather than declare for the NBA draft. Singletary, a junior, said before the season that he planned on coming back, but most observers remained unconvinced.

"I really don't put too much consideration into [turning pro] at all," Singletary said. "I came here to graduate and become a man through college and through experience. I haven't done that yet, and I realize it's going to take me another year to fully grow.

"I came to school knowing that I wanted to graduate. I have not graduated yet, and it's going to take me another year to graduate. So I'm here."

Most projections currently rate Singletary as an early second-round selection if he declared for the NBA draft.

Singletary, a 6-foot, 185-pound playmaker from Philadelphia, is averaging 18.4 points and 4.8 assists, both fifth best in the ACC.
