    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January 2020)

    Personally, I think Kofi's draft stock will soar next year when he has Curbello feeding him the ball, especially if he makes the same progress he's made this year. But I get the philosophy to go while everyone's buzzing about your potential and you've got people like Dakich saying you'll be a...

    2020-2021 Team Makeup

    From everything I've heard, I don't think there's any scenario where both Ayo and Miller are here next year, given the talk that Ayo is gone, regardless of where/if he is drafted. I think the starting lineup at the beginning of the year is: Frazier Miller Griffin Bezhanishvili Cockburn...

    Illinois 63, Purdue 37 POSTGAME

    Agreed. A look at the stat line shows that, although Ayo wasn't hitting a lot of his shots, he made up for it in other ways with 7 rebounds, a blocked shot and a couple assists. A lack of scoring doesn't bother me when others are there to pick up the slack and the player is making major...

    Missouri 63, Illinois 56 POSTGAME

    Unfortunately, I’ve noticed that in a lot of games. Not ready to give up on this team yet. But that has got to change.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Missouri, Saturday, December 21st, 12:00pm CT, SEC

    For me, my most "hated" rival is Indiana. I will cheer for most B1G teams, as long as they are not playing Illinois, EXCEPT for Indiana. (For football, it's Michigan). The game that I get the most excited for each year is the Border War game with Miznoz. I really don't pay much attention to...

    Illinois 85, The Citadel 57 POSTGAME

    When Hawkins committed, there were those who said we’d whiff on Curbelo and Miller. When Curbelo announced, the board was saying we were going to lose Antigua, even before Curbelo’s ink dried. When Ayo had a slow start, it was Miller was going elsewhere because Ayo Might not go pro. Now that it...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (November 2019)

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but Whitney only verbaled once and didn’t make any more visits after he did. That’s a big difference. Illini fans may have interpreted everything as a sign that he was waiver if, but he didn’t. If he verbals to Illinois and chooses to look around should the...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (November 2019)

    Personally, I would rather he visit this weekend. If he announces for Illinois next week and follows it up with a visit shortly thereafter to Michigan, that commitment is basically worthless. I understand his reluctance to sign anything as his scholarship and desired playing time is heavily...

    These looked even better on my tv last night. Impressive.

    Big difference from the white jerseys - no stripes on the side.

    Ironically it helps the team that's probably just as bad.
