Kofi looks great. So does Ayo. Kipper doing Kipper things. Giorgi overall solid but missing layups as usual. Shocking contribution from... Anthony Higgs?!?!?
Illini up 9 with 11 to go.
This is awesome and terrible all at once!
Similar comments made already, but here’s the bright side. Every single good or great season for the Illini in my lifetime has ended with a loss. This season ended with our BIG Freshman of the Year stuffing the possible National POY to win a game against the whiniest bunch of cornfed, inbred...
Beat Iowa, feel great, 6 seed or better.
Lose to Iowa- doesn’t hurt our seed, full week off and presumably a 7 seed or better.
Beat MN/NW, so what, doesn’t help seed.
Lose to MN/NW, potential to fall to an 8 seed.
I want Iowa.
Bad defense and hot Iowa shooting dig the hole. Damonte, Kofi, and Kipper pulled us out of the hole. Time for Ayo to take over and win us this game. I want the kind of lead that gets senior ovation timeouts at the end.
