STILLWATER, Okla. — The Oklahoma State University Student Union atrium erupted in to cheers, hoots and clapping when Marcus Smart announced he would not enter the NBA draft and spend another year with the school.
Players Le'Bryan Nash and Markel Brown also said they intended to stay at the university for another year.
Several students interviewed at the event were surprised at Smart's decision and excited at what the next season would bring. They said they expected Gallagher-Iba Arena to be packed to capacity with the players staying.
