Villanova forward Kris Jenkins, whose game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer lifted the Wildcats over North Carolina in the 2016 NCAA Tournament championship game, announced Monday night he'll be returning to school for his senior season.

Jenkins was Nova's second-leading scorer last season with 13.6 ppg average. He shot 38.6 percent from three-point range and also pulled in 3.9 rebounds per contest. 

The Wildcats are still waiting to see if star guard Josh Hart will remain in the NBA Draft after declaring without hiring an agent. Hart was invited to this year's NBA combine, so he appears to have a good chance to be picked in June.
