Cosby is back on campus now after playing a nine-game basketball tour in China. He averaged about 20 points and four rebounds per game. He also shot better than 35% from 3-PT range. Cosby is hoping that trip will propel him to a strong Illini debut this season.
"It was a great experience getting back on the court, kinda shaking the rust off, getting back in a competitive setting," Cosby said. "It's been awhile me sitting out a year, so I feel like I learned a lot - some things I can bring back and work hard on over the summer, and take into the season with me."
And when describing the food in China, Cosby had just one word.
"Different. I don't want to talk bad about it. It was different."
