When asked in the tunnel by AllCyclones if he would play, Ejim nodded his head and said, "yes."
Ejim will not start.
The senior power forward led the Big 12 in rebounding and double-doubles last season and hasn't played this season thanks to a knee injury he suffered before the Cyclones' exhibition game.
It also appears Michigan forward Mitch McGary will play. The sophomore center was dressed and warmup up before the game.
