    Chicago State replaces Wright State on Nov 26

    I'd hope it's much better than that, especially if they could delay the tourney until May if necessary and if players might be getting vaccines in February or something. I really wonder what lengths the players are doing to stay healthy. Like, are they eating in a cafeteria with other students...

    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    Press release implied there'd be some way to watch them: All three days will feature games during an afternoon session, with exact tip times to be determined based on TV designations.

    What a bummer about Mooney. I was hoping it was some kind of mix-up that he wasn't listed on the roster anymore. Still excited to tune in today and root on some former Illini.

    Now it really hurts that McCamey and Paul are playing with other teams, ugh. Richardson? Abrams? Jamar Smith? I mean, LaTulip could probably "count" as a player in a pinch, but that's not ideal.

    Illinois Alumni Team in TBT

    Man, I thought the House of 'Paign might win a couple games, and there's still a chance, but many of these teams look pretty darn good. ESPN says the Tampa team has multiple players from Auburn's Final Four team, plus Fletcher Magee. And I just saw that the OSU team picked up Trey Burke... they...

    Illinois Alumni Team in TBT

    I really hope this tournament happens as planned... I'm so sports-starved, I will probably tune in to root for Paul and McCamey in addition to the House of 'Paign games. Really interested to see Rayvonte Rice play as a point guard... also interested to see how well Bradford still gets up and...

    2020 NBA Draft

    Sources: NBA discusses delaying start of 2020-21 season until December Article also says it's probably just a matter of time before the NBA Draft gets delayed. I found this quote kinda sobering: "If you start in December, that doesn't mean the people are coming back in December, but maybe...

    No fans at NCAA Tournament, B1G Tournament

    I would think this could lead to more upsets, no? Kansas in Omaha, Gonzaga in Spokane, Duke in Greensboro lose a lot of crowd support in their early games.

    It looked like Garza elbowed Kofi in the face and then fell backwards, no?

    Old Illinois would've folded when they made a run and we would've been down 10+ at half... but THIS team has poise.

    We're in a good spot given Ayo is resting on the bench with the two fouls.

    Glad we have the lead but I don't think we've thrown the ball inside once so far
