    Looking ahead to 2020-2021

    We need to hope Curbelo's passing and setting up teammates to score will rub off on Trent. I appreciate Trent's hustle on defense and commitment to the Illini but he is very lacking when it comes to these skills. If Ayo leaves we will sorely miss his and Feliz playmaking skills otherwise. Trent...

    BU relying too much on small lineup. Can't explain his substitution thoughts regarding Kipper and Griffin. I would bet they have some of the best metrics (?) For when they are playing.

    TF plays solid D but does not cause many turnovers. The real problem is he puts very little pressure on the defense, creates very little on offense even though he has the ball a lot and his rebounding is nonexistent.

    Go back and watch. 3 on 2 transition. AG could have guarded the 3 shooter and left man in the lane open? The one before he had slow close out.

    Our offense and rebounding >>> with AG. Our defense is just as good especially considering his rebounding and steals. We have to find him more minutes.

    Everyone getting driven by (including DW) but NU quick to pull AG for it

    Illinois 62, Penn State 56 POSTGAME

    Huge win. All access in the huddle shows how big of a leader Feliz is. Quiet confidence everyone looks to.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Michigan State

    Not sure why we have changed our rotations. Kipper and Dre were first off the bench during streak and were bulldogs on defense. So noticeable since that had not been Kipper's strength in the past. We weren't playing that well offensively or shooting the ball well but played great D during that...

    As bad as our offense is (and it is really bad) the difference between our winning streak and the last 2 halves is our defensive intensity.
