TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona guard Rawle Alkins has withdrawn his name from the NBA draft and will return to the Wildcats for his sophomore season.

Alkins declared for the draft last month but did not sign with an agent, leaving the door open for a return to Tucson.

The 6-foot-5 guard participated in the NBA draft combine and had private workouts with Brooklyn and Toronto, but pulled out of a scheduled workout with Utah over the weekend.

Alkins averaged 10.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 37 games with Arizona as a freshman last season, including 36 starts.

He is the second Wildcats player to return after considering the NBA, joining guard Allonzo Trier.
