Florida Gators guard Kenny Boynton will return for senior season



Florida guard Kenny Boynton said on his Twitter account today that he plans to return for his senior season.

"To confirm the questions being ask lately I have reached a decision and I am returning to Gainesville for my senior season #go gators,'' Boynton said.

Boynton was the team's leading scorer this past season with 15.9 points per game and hit a team-high 110 3-pointers. He shot 40.7 percent from beyond the arc. 

For the record, Boyton told reporters during the NCAA Tournament West Regional in Phoenix that he planned to return, but after the team's NCAA run ended, new speculation began that he was thinking of bypassing his senior season.

Boynton has scored 1,589 career points, needs 501 points to tie Ronnie Williams' UF record (2,090). He also has 260 career 3-pointers, which is 28 shy of Lee Humphrey's school record of 288.
