RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina State's DJ Funderburk plans to return to the Wolfpack for his senior season after considering whether to leave school for a professional career.

The school announced Funderburk's decision Friday.

"I think we have all the pieces to have a great season and I'm excited to help lead the team back to the NCAA Tournament," Funderburk said.

The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 12.8 points and 6.1 rebounds as a redshirt junior last year. He also averaged a team-best 13.4 points against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents, and shot nearly 61% from the field last season.
