    Illinois 74, Northwestern 66 POSTGAME

    Absolutely! Knew that going in. Northwestern is a really good team that just can't get over the hump in games. Kinda like us last year.

    B1G Tournament Forecasting Thread

    Which is also crazy since Michigan St. beat us twice. Head to head should be the first tie-break no?? We should be behind Mich St., but ahead of Wisonsin

    B1G Tournament Forecasting Thread

    BTN says we are 4th behind a 3rd place Wisconsin because we lose the tie breaker there. Someone please explain why we are behind the team we beat on their home floor in the only meeting with the same record???

    Illinois 54, Rutgers 51 POSTGAME

    So, I understand what a quad 1 vs 2 vs 3 vs 4 win is: Quadrant 1: Home 1-30, Neutral 1-50, Away 1-75. Quadrant 2: Home 31-75, Neutral 51-100, Away 76-135. Quadrant 3: Home 76-160, Neutral 101-200, Away 135-240. Quadrant 4: Home 161-353, Neutral 201-353, Away 241-353. But, I'm not sure what the...

    Illinois 54, Rutgers 51 POSTGAME

    Most, it appears, agree that the foul on Kipper near the end was the right call. I saw a guy (Kipper) bending over to hand the ball off and the defensive player ran right into him. I don't see the foul on Kipper? Can anyone explain it otherwise?

    Pregame: Illinois vs Purdue, Sunday, January 5th, 7:00pm CT, FS1

    Just remember, AG is 3-17 from 3 in our 6 high major games. It's not like he's some sort of 3 point shooting savior.

    Illinois 95, North Carolina A&T 64 POSTGAME

    I thought it was interesting that NCA&T calls a timeout with ~1:30 to go, no substitutions, and they come out stalling on offense. The only thing that made sense was they didn't want us to put up 100 on them. I don't think I've seen a team do that before.

    Missouri 63, Illinois 56 POSTGAME

    In games won by 1 or 2 points, we have had 8 of those games in the Underwood era. Our record? 1-7. That says a lot.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Missouri

    I’ve never seen such inept basketball against Mizzou. Two years in a row. This is coaching folks.

    Illinois 78, Nicholls State 70 OT POSTGAME

    Trent, other than making baskets, was good and a big reason we won down the stretch. His defense was spectacular. Feliz is our best player; he took over at the end when no one else would/could. Ayo has a ways to go; the sloppy ball handling (i.e. turnovers) needs to stop.

    What was with Hobbs deciding not to tackle Rodney Smith on his 64 yard run?? Anybody else notice how odd that looked?

    True, BUT I put alot of stock into what other schools were after him. In this case, Notre Dame, Creighton, Marquette. That says a lot.
