    MB33, i agree, thought Samba should have played more last year.

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Why Sambas left i don't know. Is he's looking at playing time this year and the possibility of a guy like Kalbrener (whatever his name is) possibly coming next year? Everybody wants to play that i know. Regardless of players getting better with a year experience i don't want to see GB playing...

    I don't like this. We need front court depth. One reason the team wasn't very good last year was the lack of size in the post. Kofi, changes that, however, what if he were to get hurt? What if he's in foul trouble a lot? If GB is the biggest guy on the court for extended minutes again this...

    FBI College Basketball Corruption Investigation

    Considering what came out Kansas, Arizona, and LSU should come out quickly. Wait a minute, what organization is investigating this? Never mind

    It is horrible to watch, when in half court 4 guys play while 6 watch.

    FBI College Basketball Corruption Investigation

    It's obvious the NCAA doesn't want to do their job, too much money at stake. Something i find bothersome if i think about it, because i would like to see a level playing field for all schools. But since i like college football and bb i go along with the charade each year. The corrupt NCAA are...

    What kills me is folks who can't see the best shooter on the team shot 40% last season, but a guy who shot 30 is going to jump 8-13% with the line 16in. farther back. Let me know when your book comes out.

    Underwood, wanting Jones to shoot from 38-43% from 3 next year. Me too, but ain't gonna happen. Frazier, led team at 40% and Ayo at 35. Line going back 16 inches, sorry.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (June 2019)

    Cockburn, should see major minutes i assume this year with GB at the 4. When Kofi is out my choice would be , Kane. The staff is tasked with getting Kofi/Kane to be able to play with GB on the floor.

    The new line was used in the NIT tourney. The %'s were 2-3 points lower than the average. That is obviously a limited example. I don't think this will open up the game as intended, but we shall see.

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    I hav watched the NBA and there is a lot of isolation in the game or 2 on 2 and 3 guys watching and waiting for a kick. Of course. there's more but i'm not going to bore everybody here. And i certainly don't dispute the ball handling and shooting in the NBA is unmatched. But these guys are the...

    Don't like the proposed rule in regard to the 3 pt. line. Don't have the Illinois 3 pt. stats in front of me, but moving line back another 16 inches is significant. Couple coaches on the committee said this would open the game up more. Open the lanes up to the basket. I don't want the college...
