Kofi Cockburn announces intent to enter NBA Draft
He could definitely just be testing the waters, which any good player should probably do this before deciding to leave school. He’s not locked into any decision until he formally enters the draft process – he can even hire an agent and still come back next year. So we’ll see what happens.
If Cockburn does leave, though, and Ayo announces his departure in the near future, next year’s outlook may be grim.

Boneyard Creek ecosphere update
In case you were following yesterday’s action:
Boneyard Creek Ecosphere update. Dancing wigglers still here. Found some other stuff and 2 slugs. Also saw a snail earlier. And some longer, scarier worms. I am very fascinated but also incredibly scared. from r/UIUC
