    Hope to see Tevian soon. Want to see it click for him at Illinois. Quality minutes by Griffin.

    Duhon not one of my favorites due to the whole rib narrative. But he was a pretty darn good college bball player. Nimari seems to be somewhere between Duhon and Bradley Beal, but closer to Duhon.

    Nimari Burnette most skilled player in the game IMHO. Seems to have a grounded game with all the skills and athleticism to possibly play in NBA. Reminds me physically of Chris Duhon. Jalen Green similiar to Kahil Whitney, similiar size, athleticism, and game. Question is where does his game...

    I think Miller visits Michigan for the experience and respect for Juwan Howard. Past NBA players without previous coaching experience have not done well at High Div 1 level. I don't think Miller takes that chance and also only being offered after Burnett turned them down. Also talk of the...

    Arizona 90, Illinois 69 POSTGAME

    Facts of Life 1. Home court advantage is a real thing, especially when the refs turn the tide of the game 2. Fatigue is a real thing, Illinois was gased from GSU and likely Nichols OT game. 3. Rankings matter, Arizona has uber athletes and Mannion was best player on court. 4. This game was a...

    Game Thread: Illinois at Arizona

    Arizona probably top 15, plays faster. Tough to play this game right after GCU. Need Tevian in these type games.

    Chad Morris fired as Coach at Arkansas, he has verbals from good players. Time to flip some.

    Eat crow, now Lovie can start getting transfers from recently fired coached teams. FSU, Arkansas, more to follow. The success of the team and transfers at Illinois I believe will yield some studs next season.

    DeGroot is a forgotten player. He played as a true freshmen than has fallen further in the depth chart. Glad to hear he is playing solid we need the depth.

    #66 rubbed his sack on Milo that is why he punched him in his bung hole. MSU has players in the transfer portal, I would think long and hard about taking. MSU fb and bb culture is bad, wins above everything else. So glad we have MEN running our programs. I was supporting Lovie during the 2-6...

    The Arizona game is going to be great for us for these reasons. 1)It is an away game against a ranked historical power..Not expected to win 2)Ayo wants to be 1st rounder, needs to show it against Manion 3)AGriffin needs more time IMO. Prove it 4)Giorgi and Kofi bring size we have lacked will be...

    That style of play led to our players being gased and collapsing the last 10 minutes of games. I think there will be a better balance of attack as well better decision making and execution. Ayo will need to finish those lay ups that Feliz is making. Also if he is playing pg feed the open man...

    I agree, BBV doesn't have his legs or bounce. Preseason injury and little conditioning is the cause. Need some Tevian as well, can address some mismatch issues the illini have faced in first two games.

    I think Kofi and Giorgi work find, the problem Nicholls St exposed was that we don't have a true PG. When the ball went to Giorgi to help break the pressure near half court it was bad news. In that situation you probably want 4 ball handlers and a big. Problem is Damonte or AG aren't great...
