Draft pool by Sunday.  That’s the last day that underclassmen can declare for the draft.

Sykes was the Horizon League Player of the Year after averaging 20.3 points, 4.9 assists and 4.4 rebounds this season.  He scored in double figures in 29 of 30 games.

Sykes’ teammate, senior Alec Brown is working out in California, hoping to get selected in the June 26th draft.  He’s trying to become the sixth player in program history to do so.
