Bonzie Colson Returning to Notre Dame

April 10, 2017

Notre Dame basketball got some expected but nonetheless good news on Monday afternoon, as forward Bonzie Colson will return for his senior year.

“After a lot of discussion with my family and Coach (Mike) Brey about possibly entering the NBA Draft this season, I have decided to pursue my dream of earning a degree from the University of Notre Dame and return for my final year of eligibility,” Colson said in a statement released by Notre Dame.

“I promised myself and my family when I committed to Notre Dame that I would earn a degree from the University and help lead the program to new heights. Returning to play another season with my brothers and the possibility of hanging more banners in Purcell Pavilion and establishing ourselves as one of the best teams in program history is an opportunity of a lifetime.”

“It is exciting to know that Bonzie will be back for his final season,” head coach Mike Brey said in the statement.

“He has an opportunity to finish his career as one of the best to take the court here and I am impressed with the way he has handled this decision.”

In 2016-17, Colson led Notre Dame in scoring at 17.8 ppg and rebounds with 10.1 rpg. Colson earned first-team all-ACC while topping the 1,000 career points mark this season.
