Purdue standout center Zach Edey, the consensus men's college player of the year, will return to the Boilermakers for his senior season, he announced Wednesday.

The Canadian big man had a dominant junior campaign, tallying 22.3 points, 12.9 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks per game. He led the Boilermakers to both the regular-season Big Ten title and the conference tournament championship.

However, Edey and Purdue's impressive season came to a sudden halt in the first round of the NCAA Tournament following an upset loss to Fairleigh Dickinson.
