    So anyone know anything about him? Seems like a nice International pipeline we are starting, here.

    3/24 Games

    Don't know where this goes, but in reference to UCF / Duke, I hope Tacko Fall gets drafted into the NBA. I know the league is going away from big centers, but he's a fun player to watch, and has gotten a lot better in his college career.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Northwestern

    I don't mind the running up and down, but the bad shots shouldn't be the output of it.

    2/9 Weekend Games

    I think Brian Bohannon is going to be my least favorite Big 10 player for the next couple of years. He's probably a real classy guy, but he just has that look of a jerk.

    Damn, is the Pac 12 really that bad?

    Illinois 99, Rutgers 94 OT POSTGAME

    It was the kind of game where if we lost, I would feel bad, but not in the 'We blew it' kinda way. Rutgers was making some really good plays, especially down the stretch. It was kind of a shame someone had to lose it. Hell of a turnaround to such a depressing start to the season.

    Illinois 79, Michigan State 74 POSTGAME

    Damn. Illinois outplayed them about 35 minutes of the 40 in that game. Ball movement, tenacious D (cue Jack Black), Freshmen playing big tonight... Hell of a win. A thought: If Illinois was invited to the CBI, I would snatch it up. Would be a great experience.

    Georgetown 88, Illinois 80 POSTGAME

    Yes. And we didn't. this is a building season. We're not a good team right now. But we knew that going in. Take it and move to the next one.

    Well D.J. Richardson posts an I-L-L tweet last night, sending up the Bat signal for all of the hungry recruiting fans. Maybe he knows something. Or is just optimistic.

    Agreed on Brad Stevens and Jay Wright. Jay Wright muscling his way to a blue blood program is very impressive. Throw Mark Few in there as well.

    Illini Basketball 2018-2019

    Kane and De La Rosa and Georgi... there's 15 fouls to play with. Good move. Side note: I was bummed we didn't get Silvio De Sousa just because the name sounded cool. Adonis De La Rosa is a nice substitute, if not in talent, but in coolness of said name.

    Higgs > Ebo ? Understanding they're not the same position. But if that's the case, then this last month was a net positive.

    ACC wants to expand NCAA tournament from 68 to 72 teams

    Great, so the 14th place ACC team will get to !!!!! about how they only got a 17th seed. Don't like Power 5 or 6 conferences sending 2/3 of their schools into the tourney and then leaving out the MVC 2nd place team because no one would schedule them. Keep it at 68.

    Illini Loyalty Bracket Group

    Damn Cincinnati. Grumble. I picked some nice upsets in the 2nd round (after a crummy first round) and was poised to make some points in the Elite 8 and Final 4, and then that...darn...comeback.

    3/15 Games

    I have to say, this was one of the most entertaining first days of the tournament I can remember in a long time. Very few blowouts, fast paced, mostly well-played, a couple of shots at the end....
