Heels' Lawson, Ellington: No news on 2009-10

DETROIT - After being part of North Carolina's 89-72 defeat of Michigan State on Monday night in the NCAA championship game, Tar Heel junior guards Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington did not reveal whether they would return next season or leave for the NBA draft.

Lawson said he will consult with coach Roy Williams, and predicts they will both come to the same decision. But Lawson said the decision hasn’t already been made.

We still don’t know what I’m going to do yet,” Lawson said.

Ellington, who was celebrating his Final Four most outstanding player award, said after the game that he wasn't thinking about next season just yet.

But freshman Ed Davis reaffirmed his decision to return to the team next season.

"I'm not ready (for the NBA)," Davis said. - Ken Tysiac
