MILWAUKEE -- After announcing his intentions to transfer from the program, forward Juan Anderson will return to Marquette University for his junior season.
Anderson is the second player to return to the program after asking for his release in order to explore transfer options, as guard Jake Thomas elected to stay with the Golden Eagles instead of leaving for another program.
After starting 31 of Marquette's 35 games last season, Anderson was looking to move closer to his family in Oakland, Calif.
"I had an extended opportunity to discuss everything with my family and after those conversations we believed, along with the coaching staff, that Marquette was the best place for me to continue my career," Anderson said in a statement released by the school.
The 6-foot-6 forward averaged 2.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 13.0 minutes per game as a sophomore last season. Anderson averaged 4.5 minutes in 24 games his freshman season, averaging 0.7 points and 0.8 rebounds per game.
