My guess would be NCAA 13, since they could rep their respective schools.

This is a game where advanced scouting is crucial. The Trojans run so many different players at you that it's always smart to know what ech player is capable of. #timeforthetruth11/19

Anybody know when this game is actually going to start? Don't wanna be up til 2 AM for the second time in the last 4 nights... The Hawaii game was supposed to "start" at 11:30. Well it really didn't til about 11:45. Don't want this one to "start" at 11 PM, but tip off at 11:20. Ah well. Coffee, coffee, coffee.

Well, Texas and Chaminade tip off 2 1/2 hours before our game and we play 30 min after they are done. I wouldn't expect that game to go overtime, so most likely our tip will be as scheduled.

Odds on the game is a pick-em. Vegas believes it will be a close game.

Those jumpsuits have got to be the dumbest line nike has even produced. The nike swoosh and the circle I are literally the same color blue as the actual suit. There's a bunch of other nike apparel out this year for us and other schools that's the same type of thing. Who at nike thought it would be a good idea to make it so you can't even see the logo?!

There doesn't seem to be any tears in Coach Groce's eyes! I think he's over the KBD news, on to bigger and better.

Illini ready to learn at Maui Invitational

"We're going to learn a lot in the next three days," Groce said. "We're looking forward to that. This really gives us an opportunity to earmark our team and see where we are early in this season.

"The Hawaii game shows our guys that you have to play 40 minutes, and I thought we showed great resolve. You have to deal with both adversity and success. The fact that we got down a couple of times and came back, we really hung in there."

Unbeaten, buzzer-beatin' Illini basketball ready to face USC

Nobody really knows what the future holds for John Groce's first Illinois team. But the Illini will start learning more when they take on USC, coached by former Northwestern coach Kevin O'Neill, in the Maui Invitational on Monday (11:00pm CT, ESPN2).

"Our system is relatively new to these guys," Groce said Sunday. "We're an older team, so that allows them to pick up things more quickly. At the same time, everything's new. When you play in a tournament like this, you can get exposed in certain areas where your system is not rock-solid yet. That's going to be good for our team moving forward."
