Nevada’s Kemp to return for senior season

Reno, NV (Sports Network) – Nevada guard Marcelus Kemp announced he will
return to the school’s basketball program for his senior season after
withdrawing from the NBA Draft.

“After going through the entire process, I have decided the best thing for me
is to return to Nevada for my senior year,” Kemp said. “I have received
feedback from the NBA as to what I need to work on and I intend to use that to
better myself as a player. I am looking forward to pursuing my degree and
coming back to compete with my teammates for another WAC championship.”

Kemp earned first-team All-WAC honors this past season after ranking third
in the league in scoring at 18.5 points per game. He ranks fourth on the
Nevada career list with 157 three-pointers and 10th in career scoring
with 1,280 points.

“Marcelus has used the NBA early-entry process exactly as I feel one should.
He has learned how he can get better in the eyes of the NBA and he will,”
Nevada head coach Mark Fox said. “He is excited about the things he can still
accomplish at Nevada, and we are looking forward to helping him.”
