Kansas guard Wayne Selden will return for his sophomore season of college basketball.

"Cant wait to get to work," Selden said, "and get back in the fieldhouse."

A former McDonald's All-American, Selden averaged 9.7 points and 2.5 assists this season while helping the Jayhawks win their 10th consecutive Big 12 title. The 6-foot-5 guard was considered as a borderline first-round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, if he would've made himself available. His announcement now puts the spotlight squarely on teammate Joel Embiid, a 7-foot center who told CBSSports.com on Sunday that he remains undecided.

Embiid is a projected top-five pick.

He missed KU's final six games with a back injury.
