Drew Timme has been one of the most iconic and impactful players in college basketball over the past few seasons. Following the upset of his Gonzaga Bulldogs in the NCAA Tournament this past March, many thought he would move on to the NBA.

Timme announced on Wednesday that instead, he has withdrawn his name from the NBA Draft, and will return for another season in Spokane.

It's great news for basketball fans across the country, as the sport retains another marquee player for the upcoming season.

Timme has been nothing short of spectacular in his career leading the Bulldogs. Here are some of his career highlights, per an article from ESPN.com:

Last season, he averaged 18.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists, shooting 58.6% from the field. As a sophomore in 2020-21, Timme put up 19.0 points and 7.0 rebounds, shooting 65.5% from the field.

He earned second-team All-American honors in each of the past two seasons, winning West Coast Conference player of the year honors last season.

His performances have helped grow the Gonzaga program into an even greater national power, although they're still looking for a title:

During Timme's three seasons in Spokane, Washington, Gonzaga is 90-7, going to the national championship game in 2021 and receiving a 1-seed in both NCAA tournament appearances.

It's great news for Bulldog fans and College Basketball fans alike, and I'm sure many are thrilled to see one of the nation's top players give it a go one more time this season.

Minnesota Vikings In The Super Bowl? Yep, I Can Remember All Four

It's that time of year, the time when everyone is talking about the NFL's upcoming Super Bowl.

It may be hard to believe, but there was a time when the Minnesota Vikings went to the Super Bowl.

And then they went again. And then again. And then again. Hey, we were one of the greatest teams of all time!

Unfortunately, it was the same time the Vikings lost the Super Bowl. And then again. And then again. And then again. Well, at least we must have been one of the second-best teams of all time!

For a whole lot of Vikings fans...you know, the ones who walk around with younger bones...the Vikings have never been to the Super Bowl.

Then there's the ol' dog that is me. I remember the first time... and the second... and the third... and the fourth.
