    Louhensons post was before Tuesday's game. Road win at #9 PSU was huge. Illini are firmly off the bubble at this time. Also, road wins at WISC, MICH, and PSU look good to committee.

    Don't really care what you think is acceptable. Everything you said about Griffin's 1st half is accurate. And of course Underwood didn't forget about him. He was more confident with the defenders he had playing the 2nd half. Another poster alluded to Kofi being tired at end of game. Underwood...

    Underwood, didn't play Griff much(or at all?) second half, because he thought their defense gave them the best chance to win the game, which didn't include him this game. I'm not positive on this, but i don't know if he subbed at all last 5 minutes or so. No GB, maybe KN not sure. And he was right

    I hope the officials don't try to even things up, just call the game not the foul situation.

    Article on Illinihq. Underwood, says defense or lack there of reason for losing streak. I been bangin' that drum to anybody who would listen. Frazier, in complete agreement. They gotta get that intensity back to be successful. Underwood, also said he's not concerned about offense, easy to get...

    You are correct someone has to step up their game. Offensively, that is Frazier, he has not shot the ball well the last couple games. They need him to make some 3's, he's capable. What the heck has happened to the really good defense i saw. The last 4 games the opposing team has shot around 47%...

    A team that doesn't shoot the ball well takes 28 from 3. Awful. No patience on offense the 2nd half. Did not get the ball inside near enough the 2nd half. Where has the defense gone the last 4 games. Illinois has to play good defense to win. Off balance all day. They are going to win , Tuesday...

    Absolutely not. Feliz on ball defense of Winston was very good. Griifin, coming over to help was not a factor in stopping Winston.

    Since Kofi and Feliz both went with Winston, weak side help (griffin) was responsible for Tillman if he peeled off to basket, which he did. Griffin's, man wasn't around basket. Griffin, left his weak side protection which led to easy put back.
