    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (April 2020)

    Of the schools you are looking at, which school offers the best combination of coaching, exposure, fan base, campus, and upward trajectory; and why did you say Illinois?

    Not sure where to put this, but in an alternate universe, we are tipping off against ok’ Bill $elf in less than an hour to defend all that is right, and claim our National Championship. Probably.

    Looking ahead to 2020-2021

    I pulled up stats to defend Trent and ended up thinking “whoa, maybe AG is better” at least based off 19-20. Trent has a lower FG% and lower 3pt% than Damonte in conference (both awful)

    Trent with two huge threes to win it after Utah State ties it up. Great game boys!

    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!

    NCAA Tournament Canceled

    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.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs 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.

    Just flat out refusal to call #3 on Wesson

    Agreed... except that after K Wesson came back in with two they called the game differently for him. I saw three more fouls. The moving screen into DMW was blatantly worse than GB’s.
