    Illinois 79, Michigan State 74 POSTGAME

    The replay of Ayo draining the three right after Dakich opens his big mouth is priceless.

    Illinois 86, Mississippi Valley State 67 POSTGAME

    IRT %, are you speaking of someone specifically or the team as a whole? Illinois was about 52% from 3 pt range.

    Gonzaga 84, Illinois 78 POSTGAME

    Okay, but why Ayo? Was he having a good game? Was he shooting better than AJ? Was he playing better defense?

    Gonzaga 84, Illinois 78 POSTGAME

    AJ did not struggle this game. Good lord... He missed a couple of shots that we all (especially AJ) would have liked to see go in. He gave us 8 great points in the first half and a lot of much needed rebounding. Also tied for most assists on the team.

    I wouldn’t as far as I think we are out of it. I believe, of course, it will be harder to win without Trent. But, we still have a good chance of winning this game.

    Illinois 99, Evansville 60 POSTGAME

    If you are referring to when AJ scores 8 points in under a minute, he did not get “yanked.” Evansville called a timeout and play stopped.

    Well that was great. I may just watch that again. Good start.

    Nah. You are changing the definition mid discussion. You said (paraphrasing): he needs to show it in games and he has only shown it in practice. The reply was he has shown it in games and your response was the games he has shown that ability are not good enough. That is not a fair argument.

    This isn’t true. He has been a knockdown shooter in games. Sure his percentage went down during B10 play but that doesn’t he wasn’t that for at least part of the year.

    Well I wouldn’t say “for sure” but I don’t think it I likely. Oregon can really woo these kids with the facilities and the gear.

    Illini Basketball 2018-2019

    Tough news for Mizzou with Porter being hurt. I feel bad for the young man (not Mizzou, though). I hope we can avoid this kind of thing in the off-season. Please, Illini, don’t kill each other before the season starts...

    Wow, you just don’t get it. I am going to say this one more time: just because the outcome of a situation didn’t go the Illini’s way, does not mean that “hearing good things” is inaccurate. It is that simple. For example, a recruit can be on campus for a visit and say, “wow, I really like...

    Again, the talk he is hearing could be good. It doesn’t mean the person is coming here. If that is how you take those posts, you have no one to be snarky with but yourself.

    Huh? I mean, he may not be UK fans’ plan B but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a main target for the UK staff. I don’t think number of fan tweets is indicative of how hard the staff is recruiting an individual.

    I do not believe this is the case. Not a lot of questions on offense, just defense IMO. I am hoping for a ton of assists this year.

    Illinois 64, Austin Peay 57 POSTGAME

    I think some folks are being a little too hard on Finke's defense. He is not the best defender on the team by any means but he took 3 charges last night. I bet he has taken the most charges on the team this season. Now wrt Lucas, comparing him to Tate is just silly-borderline dumb.It seems like...

    I read the ogforum (for some reason) and thought it was funny someone responded to a post saying we have a 9 man regular rotation was because our starters might not be that good. Haha! It couldn't possibly be because we have a lot of talented players and we play a fast-paced style so we rotate...

    I believe it will be more hostile; not as many Illini fans making the trip/live near there. But, at the same time, with WF's recent woes, the arena may not be very filled. That being said, I do believe the EIU game helped us out by letting the underclassmen see what it is like to not play at...
