Michigan State's Dawson decides to stay in school

(AP) -- Michigan State forward Branden Dawson is staying for his senior season.

Dawson made the choice after he and his mother met with coach Tom Izzo, who gathered information about the 6-foot-6 forward's NBA stock, after the Gary, Ind., native planned to return to school.

"The three of us decided that as far as my basketball career, both present and future, and the chance to finish my degree, including possibly needing to take just one class during my final semester, that my initial decision was the correct one," Dawson said in a statement released by the school. "I'm vowing to improve my consistency and am looking forward to a great final season."
