Marquette
Announces intent to return

April 12, 2019
Howard will return to Marquette for his senior season, the guard disclosed via his personal Twitter account on Friday.
ANALYSIS
While the season didn't end the way Howard wanted with an abrupt loss to Murray State in the NCAA Tournament, it was an incredible year of individual accomplishments for the 5-11 point guard. He led the Big East in regular season scoring at 25.0 PPG, a mark that was good enough for sixth in the nation. Howard was unanimously selected to the all-Big East first team en route to Big East Player of the Year honors, and also was named a second-team All-American. Howard and the Golden Eagles finished second in their conference with a Big East record of 12-6 before getting knocked out of the postseason as a No. 5-seed. It was a young team that will now presumably return all five starters, as Howard's announcement answers the largest lingering question. Howard should be one of the nation's top fantasy assets in 2019-20, as he's plenty capable of providing assists, rebounds and steals in addition to elite scoring. He and the Golden Eagles should be early favorites to win the conference.
