Looks like Juan Anderson had second thoughts about leaving Marquette, because he’s headed back to the Golden Eagles’ program.
Anderson had announced he was leaving the program last week.
The junior-to-be has played sparingly in his two seasons on campus, and originally wanted to transfer to be closer to home. Turns out he would rather finish what he started under Buzz Williams.
The 6-6 Anderson, an Oakland native, averaged at 2.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and shooting 33 percent from the field.

He got decent playing time this year, playing at least 15 minutes in 15 games and at least 10 in an additional 11 contests. Davante Gardner, Jamil Wilson and Chris Otule are all coming back, so we’ll see how much playing time Anderson gets now.
