No injuries as far as the Wolverines are concerned.

Michigan 30-1 at home in the last two seasons. Let's make that 30-2 after today.

We're wearing the road blue for the game...

Come on Illini, The Chrysler Center is never easy, but I know we can play hard. I wish the Illini the best. Go Orange and Blue.

I will be watching from Dublin, Ireland

RT @WernerESPNCU #illini, on a five-game win streak, haven't won six straight Big Ten games since 2004-05 season. 5-5 this year vs. RPI Top 25

RT @detnewsRodBeard At 15-0, Michigan is the lone remaining Big Ten team with an unbeaten home record.

I expect a close game but have no real idea way which way it will end up. If our defensive intensity is there and we can make some baskets, we come out a winner. If we are flat, look out. Somehow, I don't see us not being competitive here on out. The guys have the fire and, even if they start slow, find a way to get back into games. Here we go!
