    Notre Dame 76, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    My brother and I live 200 miles apart but sync the telecasts and watch games together over the phone. Before the game we decided that Illinois was the slightly better team but with ND being at home the refs would decide the game. IMHO that's exactly what happened. I'd love to see some stats...

    I live in Michigan so I'm out of range for regular radio. Anyone know if the Tuenein app will let me hear the game?

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (March 2018)

    I'm definitely not an Insider but I'm hearing rumors of a second 7-footer on the way to UIUC. Not even sure we were recruiting a second 7-footer so this may be hogwash. Anybody know anything?

    He got an extra 7" on his vertical by taking his squat from 275# to 374#. That's about +1"/15#. More complicated than that, but OMG. My total vertical isn't 7 inches (class of '63)

    Thanks for the info. I'm shocked that it wouldn't be standard practice to use home court for practice to gain familiarity with the nuances of the rims and the sight picture. Love the game, but I never played so maybe those things aren't very important.

    Seven year lurker, 1st time poster. I was recently told that we will not hold practice in the SFC because we have to pay for each use. Can anyone confirm or refute this? If true, what a huge disadvantage.
