SPOKANE, Wash. - KHQ has confirmed Jeremy Pargo has withdrawn his name from the NBA draft. He will return to Gonzaga to complete his senior year.

"After careful consideration, I have decided to withdraw from the 2008 NBA Draft.  Playing in the NBA is definitely a goal of mine and one I am confident I will accomplish," Pargo said Monday as he was en route home to spend time with family prior to his return to Gonzaga. "But, at this time, I think it is in my best interest to return to Gonzaga for my senior year.  I am excited about our team next year and expect that we will accomplish great things as a group."

Bulldogs head coach Mark Few complimented Pargo for the process he undertook in arriving at his decision.

"We are proud of the way Jeremy handled himself throughout the entire process," Few said. "He was able to gain some valuable experiences and information as to what it takes to play at the next level. I know he is excited to return to Gonzaga and get with his teammates, finish his degree and have a great senior year."

Pargo, who announced April 15 he would make himself available for the draft but did not hire an agent, had until today (Monday) to announce his decision whether to return to school or enter the draft. Had he decided to pursue the draft he would have lost his final year of collegiate eligibility.
