Just days after Armando Bacot announced he was returning for his senior season, Leaky Blackmade his return official as well. On Friday, Black took to social media to announce he would use his final year of eligibility and return for a fifth season with North Carolina.

This now gives UNC three of their starting five from that Final Four team with a decision from Caleb Love pending.

After Black made his announcement, head coach Hubert Davis had nothing but praise for the forward not only as a basketball player but more importantly as a human being.

Here is what Davis had to say about Black returning for another year:

“I can’t think of anybody better to coach and be around every day than Leaky,” says Carolina head coach Hubert Davis. “His passion for this program, this University, team and basketball is what drives him and what has driven him to come back for another season. He’s the best defensive player in the country. His commitment, leadership and personality are what keeps this team so close. I’m looking forward to Leaky building on the unbelievable season he had this year, and I’m looking forward to him cementing his legacy on this program even more than he already has.”

This wasn’t the first time Davis got emotional talking about Black during this past season.

And like the head coach, we are all also glad he’s returning as UNC plans on “running it back” for this season.
