Joseph Young announced Tuesday he plans to play his senior season at Oregon.
The Houston native was a second-team all-Pac-12 selection in 2013-14, and the leading scorer for the Ducks in a 24-10 season that ended in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
Young, a transfer from Houston last season, averaged 18.9 points per game, scoring in double figures in 30 of 34 appearances and reaching 20 in 14 different games. He was the Pac-12's second-leading scorer and best free-throw shooter, at 88.1 percent.
Based on the current roster, Young will be one of two seniors in 2014-15, along with guard Jalil Abdul-Bassit.
"We're excited to have him back," UO coach Dana Altman said.
Young holds Matthew Knight Arena single-game records with 36 points, set against Western Carolina, and six steals, set against USC. He was Oregon's leading scorer against both Oregon State and UCLA in the Pac-12 Tournament, and was named to the all-tournament team.
