Illinois’ Kofi Cockburn accidentally cold-cocks referee

That had to hurt.

During last night’s Michigan/Illinois basketball game, Jamaican freshman Kofi Cockburn accidentally punched referee Lewis Garrison while celebrating. It was clearly an accident, but Garrison had to leave the game.

Garrison remained on the floor on his hands and knees with his head down, holding his head. Cockburn immediately tried to see if the injured official was okay. He later went to the hospital for “precautionary reasons”.
