Don't know where this goes, but in reference to UCF / Duke, I hope Tacko Fall gets drafted into the NBA. I know the league is going away from big centers, but he's a fun player to watch, and has gotten a lot better in his college career.
It was the kind of game where if we lost, I would feel bad, but not in the 'We blew it' kinda way. Rutgers was making some really good plays, especially down the stretch. It was kind of a shame someone had to lose it.
Hell of a turnaround to such a depressing start to the season.
Damn. Illinois outplayed them about 35 minutes of the 40 in that game. Ball movement, tenacious D (cue Jack Black), Freshmen playing big tonight...
Hell of a win.
A thought: If Illinois was invited to the CBI, I would snatch it up. Would be a great experience.
Kane and De La Rosa and Georgi... there's 15 fouls to play with. Good move.
Side note: I was bummed we didn't get Silvio De Sousa just because the name sounded cool. Adonis De La Rosa is a nice substitute, if not in talent, but in coolness of said name.
