Lowry, a sophomore, had until Saturday to declare for the June 28 draft. The deadline to withdraw is June 18.
"It was a very difficult situation," Lowry said Thursday. "I thought long and hard about it, and I felt really good with the decision I just made."
The speedy 6-foot guard was third on the Wildcats in scoring (11 points per game) and rebounding (4.3) this season, and first in assists (3.7). His 2.3 steals per game led the Big East.
