Auburn Tigers forward Johni Broome has announced that he will be returning to Auburn for another season. Broome explored the NBA Draft waters and kept his options open since the Tigers’ season came to an end at the hands of the Houston Cougars in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Broome played two seasons at Morehead State prior to transferring to Auburn last spring. In his first season with the Tigers, Broome averaged 14.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 2.4 blocks per game.
Broome started in every game for Auburn this season and his average in points per game made him the leader in that category for the Tigers this season, followed closely by guardWendell Green Jr. who averaged 13.7 points per game.
Aside from Broome, Green and forward Jaylin Williams were other Auburn players who decided to put their names in the Draft Pool.
