JMU point guard Pierre Curtis has decided to stay at JMU.
Men's head basketball coach Matt Brady confirmed Sunday morning that Curtis will be back for his junior year.
Curtis had considered transferring from JMU after the departure of Dean Keener. The sophomore told a Vermont newspaper recently that he had narrowed his choices to three schools: Vermont, Wyoming, or JMU.
Curtis has been very valuable to the Dukes in his two seasons, starting every game but one. He also has averaged close to 33 minutes a game and has led the team in assists the past two seasons.
