Max Strus Withdraws from NBA Draft to Return to DePaul
May 30, 2018

CHICAGO – DePaul guard Max Strus has withdrawn from the 2018 NBA Draft and will return for his senior season. Strus submitted his name and intentions to declare for the draft on March 28 without hiring an agent to maintain his collegiate eligibility.

“I’m glad I was able to go through the process and receive feedback from NBA teams,” said Strus. “Now we can look forward to my senior season at DePaul and we’re already working and getting better this spring as a team. We can’t wait to see everyone back at Wintrust Arena in November.”

Strus led DePaul last season with 16.8 points per game and 81 three-pointers while also averaging 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. The 81 three-pointers are ranked second on DePaul’s single-season record list and his 521 points during his junior season made him the 38th player in program history to score at least 500 points in a season. Strus scored in double-figures in 26 of 31 games during the season including 12 games of at least 20 points. He scored a career-high 33 points on two occasions in games against Northwestern and Xavier in December.

In the BIG EAST statistical rankings, Strus was among league leaders in scoring, rebounding, steals, free throw percentage, three-point field goals, offensive rebounds and minutes played and he will be among the top returning players in the BIG EAST next season.
