    He is Talor Battle's little brother though....

    Alan Griffin suspended 2 games

    Don't agree with it. Some of the KU / KSU players involved in the brawl got 2-3 games. Come on.

    Illinois Loyalty Location Census

    Grew up sneaking into NW games in Evanston and fell in love with the Flyin' Illini when I was in 8th grade. Still live in Evanston, now a NW season ticket holder. Sure, I've grown to appreciate Northwestern in a podunk kind of way, but it's a great little venue for seeing EVERY B1G team up close...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January 2020)

    Yeah I don't get it. 6'10", long, skilled, good passer and shooter w/ touch. His dad was a pro and played with and is boys with MJ. Steal is an understatement. Hawkins would be the best true 4 on our roster right now...unless BBV is more athletic than what I've seen. 1-2 years in the weight room...

    Pregame: Illinois vs Michigan, Wednesday, December 11th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    Well said. I LOVE Ayo's game, but he's not an elite shooter or facilitator. He's unbelievable on the break and at getting to the rim but it's getting predictable. You have to keep the defense guessing w/ some no-look passes to the corner, lobs to big Kof, etc. Special players do whatever it...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Nope. He went to my high school. Known him since 3rd grade. Great kid. I do know his mother though and she doesn't go by Mrs. Eastern

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    OK everyone settle down. He's a legit 6'7" 230. Huge rear-end. He has post abilities that are extremely rare for a pass-first ambidextrous PG. Maybe Lebron is a stretch :)

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Agree to disagree. Nojel will have a GREAT year. 6'7" PG who shoots it MUCH better than people think. I know him personally and the dude put up 500 shots a day this offseason. He's 230 pounds...could post up Lebron. Crazy mismatch for all of our guards and in my opinion will be drafted after...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Seriously, who in the B1G can match up with Kofi on strength? Maybe Wesson? I recognize that he'll need to adjust to the speed of the game, increase his conditioning, increase post moves, avoid fouling, etc. but man, Giorgi matched up size-wise with most B1G bigs last year and Kofi makes him...

    Nobody said NBA but Kofi will play professionally. You just can't teach 7' 285+. There's a place for him somewhere, and hopefully it's the NBA

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (June 2019)

    "Lesmond is a 6-foot-6, 175-pound shooting guard from Evanston Township High School in Evanston, Illinois. He isn’t rated by recruiting sites but MaxPreps has him as the No. 96 player in the class of 2021 and the No. 6 player in the state of Illinois. That would make him a solid four-star...
