What a week! Buzzer beater, blowout, national exposure, Maui trophy, and so much promising play. Couldn't ask for much more. I'm really excited to see what we can do throughout the season. Congrats boys, you earned it!!

Great game, even after 3 days of intense games, the guys still played hard tonight and are bringing home the Maui Championship. Hopefully our fanbase goes rabid and the team blows up this year (I'm already foaming at the mouth)

Very impressed with this win

There was a stretch in the middle of the 2nd half where officiating was questionable and the team not only held on but fought through. There are still issues but this was impressive

I think I just saw Brad Stevens tell Groce "I've made a huge mistake."

I still think Stevens is a classy coach. I like him and wish him good luck.

Mike Thomas and the trustees had better get the money together to extend Groce real quick!

This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for the Illini, winning the Maui Tournament Championship, never even trailing during any of the three games, and winning each one by double digits.

Ditto. This is a likable Butler team, Rotnei Clarke is a fun player, and I hope they win every game that's not against us this year.

What a fun week. I was totally not expecting us to actually win this tournament. I was just hoping for two wins. Great team effort tonight. Several guys played well in this game.
