    He had a decent season too, 15.5 PPG. Only 37% shooting percentage however

    He also has PSU at a 4, which is hard to believe after they have lost 3 out of their last 4 and down to the 5 seed in the B1G Tourney

    Seen it countless times in sports when a fallen brother goes down, his teammates step up and come together to make up for the injury, at least in the short term. Long term is a different story. However, I think Dre takes on an elevated role in the offense and leads us to an emotional win for Ayo.

    Always go to Black Dog if you can, but I enjoy the new Illini Inn for lunch and some brews

    I was watching that post game show as well on Fox, and originally I thought no way. But the more I thought about it, “if”we win the B1G he deserves some votes

    Dre seems to have his swagger back which is huge, especially when we didn’t have AG. If we get some bench production I see us having a chance in the last 2 min and see if Ayo can close another road win. #RoadKill

    I think we’d all enjoy seeing Damonte go off, but he knows his role and rarely even looks at the basket when he gets the ball. I can’t see him scoring more than 5 in a game at this point.

    No, Q3 loss is worse than a Q2 loss. Kinda weird but need to root for Mizzou to win enough to stay at a Q2 loss.

    It’s more that he lost his scholarship from Oklahoma than him leaving by choice Edit: poor wording on my part. More of a mutual agreement for him to move on from Oklahoma.

    I work with a woman who proclaims to be the best friend of Michael Thompson's mother, she told me injuries and partying got the best of Michael at Oklahoma and his mother really wants him to go to Mizzou, but grades could be an issue. Not saying we don't have a chance, but it will be unlikely...

    We match up well with Michigan. They play some poor interior defense, Kofi scored 19 on Teske in the first matchup. Garza has scored 44 and 33 this year against UM. Pound the ball inside, stay out of foul trouble, make a couple of threes, Ayo closes, and continue the A+ defense. ILL 68 MU 64

    I’ve thought all year this team is lacking a closer. I think Ayo has learned from his past mistakes and has become the closer we desperately lacked.
