Ky Bowman To Return To BC To Finish Natural Science Core
CHESTNUT HILL – Boston College star point guard Kyran “Ky” Bowman (MCAS ’19?) announced he will not enter the NBA Draft and will instead return to the Heights for his junior year.
Many draft experts were concerned that Bowman could not make it in the NBA due to his one-dimensional style of play and the fact the chose to go to Boston College. However, Bowman revealed that the true reason for withdrawing from the draft is that he will not leave BC until he finishes his science core.
“As much as I love basketball and the possibility of getting paid millions of dollars, there is nothing more important than educating the whole person. People like to think I’m just a scorer, but in reality I’m a scorer that understands the value of a Jesuit education,” said Bowman Thursday in a statement.
Bowman learned how seriously Boston College takes its core curriculum when his request to get his fine arts credit fulfilled for dying his hair red was denied. Now, in between working on his jumpshot and attending team practices, Bowman loves engaging with the works of Plato and the other philosophers that he read in Philosophy of the Person II.
Yet, Bowman’s one barrier to completing the core is the elusive Natural Science class.
“As fascinating as Molecules and Cells sounds, I really think Oceanography will allow me to connect my desire for learning to my passion for all things wet, like the ocean or my jumper.”
At press time, Bowman’s Twitter profile still read “2018 NBA DRAFT HERE I COME.” Please credit @theneclassic with this highly reliable source when Ky Bowman is drafted this June. Take that, Bleacher Report.
