EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State All-America guard Cassius Winston is returning for his senior year and Nick Ward is entering the NBA draft and plans to end his college career.

The school announced the decisions Friday.

Winston, the Big Ten player of the year, averaged nearly 19 points per game as a junior and broke a Big Ten single-season record with 291 assists. He led the Spartans to the Final Four after helping them win the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles.

Ward averaged nearly 13 points and six-plus rebounds per game in a season stunted by a broken left hand. He entered his name in the NBA draft last year after his sophomore season and chose to return to college.
