The Clemson basketball program received some fantastic news Wednesday afternoon.

Per Jon Rothstein on Twitter, point guard Shelton Mitchell and shooting guard Marcquise Reed are withdrawing from the NBA Draft and returning to Clemson for their respective senior seasons.

This development makes the Tigers, who are coming off their first Sweet Sixteen appearance in two decades, a potential preseason top-25 team and legitimate contenders in the ACC.
