    I believe that Trent was hampered both on offense and defense by his ankle/foot issues. Georgi has had respiratory issues. At one point he was gasping to catch his breath at the free throw line. Ayo may have hit the freshman wall. Many reasons they have struggled.

    Probably the lowest foul total for a half all year - 4.

    7 of 31 and 3 of 15 from 3. Cline and Eifert were 9 of 13 from 3? What kind of team chemistry would that be?

    He has had an amazing career. Remember after his first two years no one really thought he had much of a future. Then he made alot of 3's at the beginning of his junior year and he was tagged as a sharp shooter. When that did not continue into the Big10 season he was written off again. Now he...

    Game Thread: Illinois at Purdue

    Purdue has a five man rotation. Illinois has a nine or 10 man rotation. Lets hope they wear out in the second half.Carson played 20 minutes. If they have to depend on him in the second half will tired legs affect his shot?

    They should disappear as the play at Maryland, at Purdue, at NW, and Wisc at home. Lucky to win one.

    Wisconsin 64, Illinois 58 POSTGAME

    I thought that he had a reasonable outside shot. Since a bad start he has not shot from outside 15 feet. When he gains confidence in the outside shot it will make him even tougher to handle.

    Looks like many of the Wisconsin players are out of breath already. Run run run

    Is the NCAA tournament supposed to have the best 64/68 teams or the teams with the best records? It would seem that they are trying to get the best teams. If the Illini win out or even go 5-1, they certainly should be considered in the best 64 teams in spite of their record. They would have...

    The few times I have watched Purdue, Edwards does chuck it without even being part of the offense. It is one thing to take shots as part of the offense but often his shots are him just going for it.

    Not only our starters but 9 or 10 deep. Part of our success is keeping everyone as fresh as possible playing intense defense. Also if you are not getting it done, you sit. The defense requires everyone to do their job. One weak link and it breaks down for easy layups. Also very discouraging...

    I totally agree that everyone is discounting how good Illinois is. The Illini have demonstrated for the last 6 games that they can (and will) beat anybody. They have done it with defense. 1. It is much less likely to have an off night if your strength is defense versus offense. 2. The defense...

    You left out Kipper. WHEN he hits his potential watch out. Everyone will be as surprised by his performance as they have been Giorgi's. If the Illini miracle happens (Win out) Kipper will be a factor.
