Interested to see how the crowd is going to be tonight. Was pretty good for the Maryland game. Probably won't be anywhere near that level of energy but I will try and add my little piece!

I hope the joint is filled to the rafters. Or are there finals this week? Students, locals got to see the change in direction of Illinois basketball after more than a decade of mediocrity. I'm excited about what's happening under the new coach.

There will probably be a drop in attendance for tonight’s game, but I expect it to be a tough battle early on. If we’re playing hard, we should pull away in the second half.

BU just said on pregame interview that the coaches and players think they SHOULD be 9-0.....

I really am glad BU is here...

Damonte does the small things well and makes the team better. I have to disagree with you.

TF needs to join Jordan and Williams in those 6 AM shooting sessions. Just what you have to do to get better.

Radio feed has been late a lot. A fan who was at Maryland game called post game show Sunday complaining that she could not listen to local radio while at game (like a lot do) because of significant delay. Like 45-60 seconds. Announcer said it was a glitch, but appears they haven't fixed the glitch yet. Painful listening to BTN play by play.....

Best shooter on the team is on the bench for the first 7 minutes.

Kip should have given the ball up to AJ a lot sooner. Damonte should be starting right now, love the change.

this team continues to go ice-cold playing what could easily pass for Groce-ball. Pass the ball around the perimeter and then someone hucks a 3.

I was told there would be a 7-second rule and lots of inside play. What happens to that for stretches at a time?
