Razorback fans could definitely use some good news these days. Tonight, some arrived.

Razorback guard B.J. Young, who had been contemplating entering the NBA draft, announced a short while ago that he will return for his sophomore season. Young had a terrific freshman year for Mike Anderson's first Arkansas squad, averaging more than 15 points a game and shooting better than 50 percent from the field, a remarkable stat for a guard in this day and age.

For much of the last half of the season, Young was the Hogs' only offensive threat, and the thought of not having him around next year was not a pleasant one. Fortunately, it's not one we have to entertain any longer.
