Will Barton Coming Back For 2011-12

Tigers Guard Will Barton says the decision for him to come back for his sophomore season was not a hard one to make.

Barton made his intentions known Monday via his Twitter account, saying he not only would be back, but wouldn't even test the NBA waters.

The Tigers freshman said several things figured into his decision, including the chance to continue playing basketball with his brother Antonio, and the looming NBA lockout possibility.

But mostly, Barton says he didn't meet the expectations he set for himself, and thinks a full-strength, experienced Tigers team will be tough to beat next year.

The 6-6 guard led the Tigers with a 12.5 scoring average and was also the squad's second-leading rebounder this season.
