    My goodness, if anyone wins this game, the rest of the world still loses.

    I’d honestly start fouling Happ to extend the game and hope for empty possessions for them

    Agreed, will need to make FT’s and be hot from beyond the arc. There’s a reason their streak against us is at 14. We can win, but a lot will have to go right.

    If they win at Wisconsin I’m going to start buying into this. I’m sipping the juice, I’m not chugging it....yet.

    A great road W. Man if there was ever a shot where I was yelling ‘No, no, no, no......YES!’ it was that 3 pt shot by Ayo.

    I'm actually in the camp that thinks Wisconsin won't really drop off that much/at all even though they lose Happ. Losing Happ means they can go back to playing the swing offense that they can't play since Happ is complete black hole in the paint. Reuvers is more of the big man they've had in...

    Probably 14 straight L’s, but on the plus side, if it stays at like 10-12 I think we still decrease their average margin of victory over those 14 L’s.....so you know.....there’s that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    How are there 4 minutes left in this game? This is playing excruciatingly slow

    Just stop shooting 3’s, drive to the basket and hope to get fouled. Then maybe make both FT’s....

    I mean, how many Big Ten teams do you think we could realistically beat? Because my answer 3 weeks ago is vastly different from now. I’m at a point where finishing dead last is on the table

    Missouri 79, Illinois 63 POSTGAME

    The defense has never been good under BU and despite the YouTube clips of how great the offense is, I haven’t seen anything to convince me that our personnel can run it successfully and/or it turns out handing the ball off at the top of the key really isn’t hard to defend.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs UNLV

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m very pro playing the younger guys like Samba since I’m not convinced DLR could hit a barn from 5 ft away with his shot, but DLR is going to get PT against bigger centers. Samba has some flashes, but he’s at least another summer of hitting the weights hard before making...

    It feels like we have the game well in hand, but we’re only up 7. Hope we can finish this one out

    Game Thread: Illinois vs UNLV

    It’s a good match-up for Kane to get playing time as well. He’s not overmatched in size or strength against any of their big guys. If this was for example a game against MSU, I would expect to see a heavy dose of De La Rosa regardless of how well Samba may or may not know the offense because I...

    I usually find street parking around that area and have never had a problem. I’d guess that it’s cheaper because it’s another block or 2 away from the UC and it’s cold outside

    Hmm, I predict: 1) Abysmal attendance overall 2) This game will be deafeningly silent OR pro-Ohio State. 3) We foul 20+ times 4) We lose

    Notre Dame 76, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    Like others have said, I wouldn’t mind seeing Samba get more minutes. He’s going to get pushed around a lot on the inside but his lateral quickness and length could help defensively. De La Rosa is a big body, but he is slow and honestly I never feel like any of his shots will ever go on. They...

    Either our defense is playing better or Notre Dame is really bad offensively? I want to believe it’s the former, but my eyes tell me it’s the latter. This is a snooze fest
