BROOKINGS, S.D.—South Dakota State's Mike Daum, who declared for the 2018 NBA draft earlier this month, has announced his intentions to return to the Jackrabbit basketball program for his senior season.

"After taking time to explore my professional options and discussing my goals with family and coach (T.J.) Otzelberger, I'm excited to return to South Dakota State for my senior season," Daum said. "I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead in 2018-19, and am eager to see what this program can do with so many talented pieces returning."

Daum is a two-time Associated Press honorable mention All-American and Summit League Player of the Year. He led the Jackrabbits to their third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance and was one of three players nationally to average more than 20 points (23.9) and 10 rebounds (10.3) per contest this season.
