A rebuilding team learning how to win wins an ugly horrible eye bleach game.

Better than losing....on to UNLV! Not much else to say, really.

Why did Lucas look like he just got yelled at in the line by coach at the end?

I cannot recall an Illini team looking glummer about a win than I do right now.

This is a good thing.

Can't put it much better than this.

I wasn't able to watch or listen to this one. What happened to AJ? Just not his night?

After the Sunday game, this is 2 steps back. Think we need rest. Glad we won.

Glad it was a win. I couldn't face losing to Austin Peay twice in one lifetime.

Ugly game. A young team not fully ready to play against an aggressive team. They grinded out the win which is all that matter. On to Vegas!

Does it feel like a win? Or does it feel like the somber prelude to getting our butts whupped by UNLV?

Felt better about the Maryland loss than this win.

I feel like they regressed tonight, while I felt the second half vs Maryland was a huge step forward.

One positive takeaway is that the Illini have improved immensely since 1987

I disagree, we could easily be 10-0. Are we great at putting together this whole system not even close. But we have the talent to compete with most teams and by the time we really get into the big ten schedule I think we will be much better all the way around
