Tony Mitchell will return to North Texas, ending speculation that he might enter the draft in response to the departure of former coach Johnny Jones.

Jones, who coached North Texas for the past 11 seasons, recently agreed to take over the top job at LSU.

Mitchell, a 6-foot-8 forward, has decided to return with the goal of working on his perimeter skills.

Dominique Ferguson Declares For Draft After Being Denied Release

Florida International forward Dominique Ferguson is entering the NBA draft after being denied permission to talk to other schools.

"They won't give me my release and let me play anywhere else," said Ferguson, who sought to transfer in the wake of Isiah Thomas’ dismissal. "They give schools too much power and treat us like they own us."

The 6-foot-9 forward averaged 8.7 points and 6.2 rebounds this past season.

"It's over," Ferguson said. "I'm going to put my name in for the NBA draft."
