Oscar Tshiebwe isn't going anywhere. While there was speculation that he'd be heading to the NBA Draft, the reigning Naismith Player of the Year has decided he's not done in Lexington just yet.

On Wednesday, the superstar big man announced on SportsCenter that he'll be back with the Wildcats in 2022-23. Obviously, this is massive news for Kentucky.

Tshiebwe averaged more than 17 points and 15 rebounds per contest last season. His return is massive for John Calipari and his coaching staff. Now, UK fans can dream about this team potentially going on a deep postseason run come next year. What an update for UK.
