    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    After taking another look, I came to the following conclusions. NBA - Last day to declare - August 17 NBA - Date to withdraw - October 6 NCAA - Date to withdraw to retain eligibility - August 3 (or 10 days after combine, whichever is earlier) Maybe this is right?!?

    NCAA Tournament Simulation

    How big was #52 for Utah State? He made Kofi look small when they were side by side waiting for a free throw. šŸ˜‰

    Ayo Dosunmu All-Big Ten First Team, Kofi Cockburn B1G Freshman of the Year

    It wasn't between Ayo and Oturo. The media chose Ayo while the coaches went with Cowan.

    3/7 Weekend Games

    As the 5 we'd have Ā¹Wisconsin and ā“Iowa, and our record against them would be 1-2. The 6 would have Maryland and Michigan State as the 2 and 3 seeds, who we are 0 and 4 against. Let's win tomorrow and make it a moot point!

    IU's on pace to break 70 points. Not how we win games.

    Maybe it was the all access telecast but that 60% sure sounded loud on TV.

    If we keep feeding Kofi and Giorgi and get Feliz untracked, I like our chances.

    Pregame: Illinois at Iowa, Sunday, February 2nd, 12:00pm CT, FS1

    Agree with all except having the guards help off. That's what Iowa wants and if we do that, Iowa 3's will be what beats us.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Minnesota

    The 3 was a bad shot, but on the turnover Deon said that Tev read it right, but Kofi should have rolled hard to the basket.
