    Really hope we are in the lead for Kalkbrenner. Sounds like an intriguing post player. Can never have enough guys to protect the paint.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May 2019)

    Being a fan of Illinois basketball continues to depress both on and off the court. First two years of the Underwood era have been awful to watch. Now another recruiting miss on what felt like a slam dunk. These articles written about guys guaranteeing a trip to the ncaa tournament aren’t really...

    Pregame: Illinois vs Iowa, Thursday, March 14th, 8:30pm CT, BTN

    I know one way to improve our chances against Iowa, leave Damonte on the bench. Literally hasn’t scored in three straight games. Hope we win tomorrow night and get some revenge from our previous outing against the Hawkeyes. Think Trent and Andres gained some confidence with their performances...

    Kasubke, Love, and Fletcher are all guys we have offered. This shootout is a fun event. If you have never been I highly suggest it.

    At the Highland Shootout. Cuonzo just walked into the house. My guess to watch Love from CBC and Mosley from Rockbridge. I heard our staff will not be at this event... hope that isn’t true. Painter in the house as well

    Illini Basketball 2018-2019

    This team is essentially year one for Underwood because we lost so many players off of last years roster. Our Win Loss record is going to be awful when the season is over. Hopefully we don't lose many players this year if any during the offseason. Next year will be better if the team remains...

    Gonzaga 84, Illinois 78 POSTGAME

    Nice effort last night. Team battled to have a chance to win against Gonzaga. If given the choice prior to tipoff that we would be down 2 pts with the ball and less than a minute in the game we would have all taken that. AJ battled and got 10 rebs, great effort from him. Everyone needs to...

    Will a replay of the game be available to watch later tonight if I have BTN +?

    I hope Smith gets to play this year. And then Damonte and Trent "abuse" him the night of the Braggin Rights game. A tip dunk over he or Tilmon would be great. I hope our team can mature quickly this year and play better as a unit than last year's team. If we do that we will be enjoyable to...

    Hope Timme has a public workout and the fans fill it up at Ubben. If we land him and no one else for the fall signing period it would still be a huge success for the staff. Start stacking players of Ayo/Timme caliber types in consecutive classes and we will be in good shape.

    Are we certain that Drew Timme actually makes it to campus for one of his official visits? Looks like last weekend he visited Gonzaga?

    DJ Jeffries decommited this afternoon from Kentucky. He was a 6'7" small forward... I was hoping that the fact they already had a 5 star wing would be a negative in the Whitney recruitment.

    40 point losses... that was what would be happening with Groce as head coach. New man in charge. Last year we didn't get the win loss record we wanted but at least most of the games weren't decided by half. I am thankful the roster has been purged. I look forward to see how this team does this...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May-June 2018)

    Have zero info on Whitney but if we could somehow land him over the summer I would have to think that would be helpful in landing a post player in the fall. Whitney is the type of athlete that can be used in so many ways in our spread offense. It would be really impressive if the staff lands him.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (April 2018)

    Missouri just added another transfer guard, Dru Smith from Evansville. I think Robertson blowing up for them as a grad transfer may be fools gold. I am glad that we aren't going after so many transfers like Groce did. Gotta think Ramey is going to go to Louisville. Would love to beat them again...
