Markus Howard set to return to Marquette for senior season

By  | 

Marquette guard Markus Howard is giving golden eagles fans something cheer for this offseason.

Howard announced on his Twitter his plans to return to the Golden Eagles for his senior season.

He's just 30 points shy of Jerel McNeal's program scoring record.

Howard averaged 25 points per game this season and earned second team All-American honors.

But concerns about his size had most pundits pegging him as a mid second round pick at best.
