Willie Cauley-Stein Tweets That He'll Return To Kentucky For His Junior Season

Earlier on Monday, Kentucky head coach John Calipari claimed that at least half of Kentucky's eight NBA-hopefuls would be returning to the Wildcats for another year of collegiate basketball.

Cauley-Stein averaged 6.8 points per game and 6.1 rebounds per contest this past season before injuring his ankle against Louisville during the Wildcats' NCAA Tournament run.
