Hill Announces Return for Senior Season


CHAMPAIGN -- Rather than wait another six weeks, Illinois guard Malcolm Hill put speculation to rest Friday. He'll stay at Illinois for his senior season.

Not a highly-regarded draft prospect at the moment, Hill made the announcement via Instagram.

"I have had a great experience here at the University of Illinois. I will be returning for my senior season," Hill wrote. "I want to come back, get my degree, continue to develop my game and have an opportunity to play in the NCAA tournament. We have unfinished business. I owe it to this wonderful community, my teammates and our great fan base. Thank you for the support and love for me and our program."

Hill averaged 18.1 points and 6.6 rebounds per game for Illinois, which finished the season 15-19, missing the NCAA tournament for a 3rd straight year.
