    2/19 Games

    I for one definitely hope Rutgers gets in. However, the tournament is just so much more interesting to me when Illinois is in it. Just adds so much that it is hard to explain.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Maryland

    They should cool off and we'll get Trent and Kofi back. Need to get Kofi the ball more inside. Missed too many free throws and easy shots around the basket. Give Maryland some credit, they look like a top ten team and if we can beat them so will we.

    The Bracket

    The Maui Invitational tournament field sure looks impressive now. Hard to go against Duke for a champion Look for Iowa State and Florida State to have good runs Tennessee in the Final four along with Duke, Florida state, and Carolina Murray State with their guard play as a dark horse

    Good win but hard to watch at the end. Some of the free throws looked rushed

    Big Win, tough to watch in the second half, our house had a lot of nervous people. Nice to see the guys close one out. Nice game to learn from..and with a win..
