(TSX / STATS) -- CINCINNATI -- After testing the NBA waters for the second straight offseason, Xavier guard Trevon Bluiett has decided to return for his senior season, giving the Musketeers a likely preseason top-25 team hoping to make another deep NCAA Tournament run.

"Trevon is one of the best players in all of college basketball and we're excited to have him back in the role of senior leader," said Xavier head coach Chris Mack. "Tre has been a part of three straight NCAA appearances including trips to the Sweet 16 and Elite 8. He competes every day and continues to improve in every facet of the game. I know our fans are ecstatic."

Bluiett worked out for his hometown Indiana Pacers on Monday then reportedly had a workout scheduled with the New York Knicks on Wednesday before cancelling hours before making his return to Xavier official.
