    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    I understand this isn't how this is going to go, but if I'm a team, with the current situation we have with the pandemic, I think I'm going with what I know vs. a kid with unknowns. They know Ayo is a baller, they know he's mature, can lead a locker room, stays out of trouble, great family...

    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    I'm a little lost here so if anyone could help me out I would appreciate it. Why are we thinking Collier is decommitting? I know his coach posted something but wasn't sure what that was reference to. Who is the silent verbal transfer from Louisville? Thanks!

    But don't we think Moffit already kind of committed? Wasn't he a part of the two commits the other day, Solomon and him? The staff getting excited again tells me there is a third. That's kind of how I see it then.

    Could it potentially be Craig? I know he commits later, but would he potentially tell the school he's planning on committing to or does that school typically find out when the rest of the world does?

    Just some other names to throw out there being glue guys and shooters in Aaron Jordan, Mike Finke or Trent Meacham?

    Kofi Cockburn declares for NBA Draft

    One thing to keep in mind is that the NBA draft is also very much based on potential. Kofi has one very big thing that cannot be taught and that's height. He's also an absolute monster. Does he have a jump shot yet, no, but it's something that can be developed. Up onto this point in his...

    Alan Griffin transfers to Syracuse

    Would you have considered Kendrick Nunn an NBA player in his sophomore season at Illinois?

    Michigan State 76, Illinois 56 POSTGAME

    I'm also not a big fan of our dribble hand off offense. It doesn't work. Michigan State was literally showing before the hand off even occurred last night. No where to go and when we can't make a 3, does absolutely nothing IMO.

    Michigan State 76, Illinois 56 POSTGAME

    I didn't read this whole thread, so I apologize if i repeat or say anything that has been stated. I truly think AG needs to be in the starting lineup. He gives us the scoring/rebounding threat we need and can stretch the floor with his shooting. DW is a guy that comes off the bench IMO. I...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January 2020)

    So, out of pure boredom this morning I decided to take a look at the 2004-2005 team, stats, recruiting and what not. One big thing that came to mind is every player on that roster was from IL, except for 3 (Deron Williams, Jack Ingram and Warren Carter-who were all from TX). What is everyone's...

    I'm on the Illinois side of the Quad Cities and our area code is 309. We're about 45 mins from Peoria so they may be as well. This recruiting thing is fun! lol

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (February 2019)

    I was a senior when chasson was a freshman. A truly amazing kid to be around in every aspect of life. He was a huge miss for Illinois, but it was what was better suited for him. I actually coached baseball at Rockridge, where Happ is from. Aren’t too many kids that work harder than him day in...
