    A double double double for GB & Kofi?

    Game Thread: Illinois vs The Citadel

    We are doing only one thing wrong tonight. We are missing all of our shots. Can that go on for the entire season?

    You mean we are on the team? No wonder we commit so many turnovers!

    Pregame: Illinois vs The Citadel, Wednesday, November 20th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    Followed by complaints in this forum about BU's failure to coach desperation 3 point half court shot at the buzzer defense.

    Illinois 66, Hawaii 53 POSTGAME

    Dunno. Whatever it is, it should not be easy to just reach in and take the ball away from one as big and strong as Kofi.

    This. Kofi is good now and has an enormous upside, but he is far from being the complete package. The thing that strikes me as oddest is that his hands seem very week. When a defender reached in, the ball came out, every time. That shouldn't happen with someone that big and that strong.

    Kofi Cockburn named B1G Freshman of the Week

    I wonder if he has been coached not to try too much on defense as a way of keeping him on the floor longer. His mere presence in the middle strengthens our D and doing more means fouling more.

    Is he taking an official to Ann Arbor or not? He tweeted that he was, and then pulled the tweet. Now all his twitter feed says is "Michigan offered." What does that mean?

    By open spot, I meant a clear path to substantial playing time, not just a scholarship. That path is unclear if Ayo stays. I'd like to get him AND have Ayo stay, but I don't think he will be looking for my advice even though we're both former Peorians.

    Arizona 90, Illinois 69 POSTGAME

    The problem with this approach is that neither one of them seems able to pass out of a double-team. Passes to the post become turnovers. Then again, lots of things become turnovers with this team.

    If he wants certainty of an open spot, Arizona is as close as he will ever get to a sure thing.

    No scenario? I was thinking of aliens from Area 51 landing at center court at halftime. That would be really close.
