Amida Brimah and Rodney Purvis have withdrawn their names from the list of underclassmen eligible for the 2016 NBA Draft and will return to UConn for their senior seasons, per a release.

Neither player was invited to the NBA Draft Combine. Since neither Brimah or Purvis hired an agent, they retained the ability to return to school prior to the May 25 deadline.

The return of these two key players will only benefit the Huskies in the 2016-17 season.
