Trevor Mbakwe's decision about where he'll play basketball next season may not be final until next month, but he dropped a strong hint on Sunday night.

"Unfinished Business," Mbakwe wrote on his Twitter page. "I can't go out like this."

Mbakwe, 23, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and missed most of his senior season at the "U".

But he was granted a sixth year of eligibility last month, giving him the option of playing another season for the Gophers and trying to raise his stock for next year's NBA Draft.

At the time, Mbakwe said he was excited about the news but cautioned that he wasn't sure about his decision. He reiterated that in a follow-up tweet on Sunday, saying the decision is "(n)ot official yet."
