UNC's Joel Berry II Announces Definitive Return For 2016-17 Season

With NBA Draft decisions looming, college basketball fans are anxiously awaiting players' announcements of return or departure from their favorite programs. On Friday, North Carolina fans experienced both sides of this.

Not long after UNC's announcement that Justin Jackson and Kennedy Meeks would be entering the upcoming draft - though, not hiring agents - Tar Heels fans received some comforting news when Joel Berry II announced his definitive return for his junior season on Instagram.

Berry averaged 12.8 points, 3.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks for the Tar Heels last season.
