I heard that the Illini have a twenty-point bulge. Whatever that means, it's got to be pizza-worthy.

Man that felt really good! Also Painter getting thrown out was classic and so was Griffeys rebound and dunk!

HUGE win to finally get the Purdue monkey off our back. Now, let's come out with the same intensity against NU and get another revenge win.

Great all around play tonight. Real balanced attack.

Loved watching Painter get tossed. Him and Bruce can cry about it over a Miller Lite.

Is anyone else ecstatic that we actually score off of inbounds plays now instead of struggling to get it in play?

Good Lord do I hate Purdon't... Glad the seniors finally got to send those clowns Painter and Byrd home with their tails between their legs... I will drink to that! Cheers Illini Nation!

Great win! Groce made a statement that he won't let painter walk all over him!

It is very nice to win one of these easily. Loved the rebounding and toughness. No doubt Groce made clear they weren't going to get out toughed again by Purdue.

Beat Northwestern.
