Ugly but I'll take it. This was a dangerous game.

Who else is glad we are almost done playing the bums? One left vs. Auburn, right?

There are 8 undefeated teams left; we are one of them. It wasn't pretty, but I'll take it.

Great to win, but some of these mental lapses are gonna kill us if we continue them in B1G play. Brandon reverted back to last year with his turnovers and Tyler played with no urgency.

I'm glad to play at the united center. It will give the fellas a real home crowd with fans that can make noise. At one point when victory was evident, I could specifically hear one cheerleader's voice. It was a clear as Steven bardo. No crowd noise to muffle it.

Thrilled with the win, but not thrilled with the manner of it.
It is fine for Bardo to talk about how they play differently than anyone else we will see this year. But doesn't that mean that there are aspects of their game that are worse than other teams we will play this year? Shouldn't we get to abuse those weaknesses.

I was so high after Maui, I think I'm still suffering from the reality check.

Bertrand is so efficient every game scoring he needs to look to score more. BP takes 8 3's to Bertrands 1 yet JB is shooting over 50%.

Win is a Win!

Meh. Just win. Joe and Tracy played well.

Hope Griff can find it again, because he was bad from the tip.

Our sluggishness at home is confounding. Hope the Maui/Gonzaga Illini come to play in St. Louis. No game in the regular season I want to win more.

There's 15000 people there. What more do you want? Hard to get riled up when you turn the ball over every other possession.

I want us to get back to shooting and MAKING double digit 3's every game. Leading the country in made 3pt fgs just really made me happy.

If you were to tell me we would have 20 turnovers and still win by double digits i would have taken it in a heartbeat. Sloppy game but we keep winning, time to bring on Mizzou.

Being from KY, I know how rare it is to see an undefeated EKU team (even this early in the season). Good game all-around. I'm surprised EKU stuck with you guys this long. Congrats!

Glad to see some of the other players step up. Bright spots: Rebounding, IL w/ 9 blocks. Problems: disappearing players, turnovers

I agree with orangeKrush117, I am so glad these type of games are almost over. We'll play hard and look totally different against Mizzou......
