    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Exactly. It's very possible that this year's team could have been a 16 win team with next years schedule depending on what it looks like. So an additional 4 wins based improvement from existing parts and addition of new parts isn't too far fetched

    Williams made 2nd team all conference. Maybe he can just play both here. In all seriousness I'm wondering if this is a courtesy offer at this point from us to MIF. I mean, never close the book on a 7 footer but I wonder if he has some things to prove before he could sign

    He "liked" various tweets talking about next year and his improvement etc... Hopefully that's a sign at least that he isn't 100% checked out. Anything could happen, but hopefully he likes what he's been a part of and can see a positive future and will be an Illini next year

    Underwood apparently has way more fans at these NCAA tourney games than he does on Loyalty.. Multiple times today I have heard chants of "BU! *clapclap* BU! *clapclap*

    Right. Was just pointing out that 1-2 non-senior contributors from this year would need to leave for us to be able to take in 5-6 newcomers. Not 4-5

    1 or 2 would need to transfer to take in 5 or 6. ADLR, AJ, (open), Higgs(medical) make up 4 spots

    Yeah I don't buy that we don't have a chance either. If Alan enjoys some sort of a sophomore breakout and we can make an appearance or two in the top 25 I think we'll get consideration. All we need to be able to prove is that we are one guy(younger Griffin) away from a top 10 caliber team...

    Exactly. I was mostly being sarcastic. Knowing what we know now, we would definitely take it. But had that been our path the last 8 years we wouldn't be happy with it either lol And I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that!

    Sincerest apologies! But I'm okay as long as it's leaning one way and not falling down!

    Why does corn in Illinois lean to the West? Because Iowa sucks and Indiana blows! Go illini!

    Samba seems to be a little quicker, more mobile than Adonis. Think he gets some tick tonight to give GB a rest and to try and frustrate Happ with his length?

    2019 NBA Draft

    I'm hoping he stays but I think there will be a strong push from certain individuals or an organization close to him to go. Hope he can make his own decision on what he feels is best for him. If you get enough guaranteed, you gotta go
