Griffey regains his confidence and huge 3 by Abrams down the stretch. Great win!

This is so huge, I'm very tempted to break Dan's rules about using giant fonts. It's HUGE!

Man, what a good feeling to not be rationalizing away a turd-in-the-punch bowl loss after an upset!

I don't see how we couldn't be in the tourney now.

Probably the best defensive adjustments we have made all year. And thank you baby Jesus Rodney was injured. Another great game by DJ and Tyler! Ice in Abram's veins!

Gauntlet 3, Illini 2.

What a great finish to that 5-game stretch.

It's over! That horrible stretch is DONE!

Griff is the key to this team! Would never have thought that before the season.

No one can say the IU game was a fluke now.

BOOM!!! Big win. Great effort. A rare break of the trend of scoring less than 60 and winning. An absolute boost not just to the resume, but to the team's confidence as well. Oskee Wow Wow!!

That was a big time win. BIG TIME. A little bit of hangover coming out of the gates, but a ton of effort to get the lead by half. So proud of these guys and this staff.

Wow, what a week! How many of our points in the 2nd half came from 3FG?

Tracy with the icy, ICY dagger. Oskee Wow Wow!
