Reports: Marcus Smart Will Announce Return
Marcus Smart

Posted Apr 17, 2013

The moment the press release was sent, the countdown began. At about 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oklahoma State announced Marcus Smart, Le'Bryan Nash and Markel Brown were set to hold a press conference inside the Student Union at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. Hours later, Yahoo! NBA columnist Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news on Twitter than Smart will return to Stillwater next season.

While Smart and the athletic department haven't confirmed the report -- they'll wait to officially announce anything until the scheduled press conference -- it's all but signed and sealed that the Cowboys will be loaded next season.

With Smart, Nash and Brown returning, OSU will return the Big 12's three leading scorers from last year. The trio combined for 44.7 points per game before falling to Oregon, 68-55, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

When things are official tomorrow afternoon, check back here for some unique perspective on Smart's decision.
