    Losing this game by two rebounds and two layups... sounds competitive, and it ain't over!

    What a slow-scoring slugfest so far. Gotta say that at 35-39, our guys had been outscored 31-19 in the last 14 minutes, but they're still hanging with 'em. One favorable bounce still the difference here. Fun to watch the orange in hostile territory... fearless. Hope they can keep their legs.

    Kevin Anderson

    Anderson blanks Djokovic in his next game to quickly hold! Maybe he's breaking through against the master defenseman? Gotta run. Go Kevin! :shield:

    Kevin Anderson

    Taking Djokovic to deuce again, he just saw set point. Back to 40-all, though... edit: Novak takes three straight points to hold. 5-5 in the third.

    Kevin Anderson

    Honestly, he's already matched his double faults (four) from the entire Isner match. It could be that his approach is different for the different opponent (6'2" vs. 6'10"), but it's more likely that he's just not as sharp.

    Kevin Anderson

    Down two sets (2-6, 2-6), he's still not dead against Djokovic, who just held serve to regain a 3-3 tie in the third set. The match with Fed was tighter, but I can only track this one without video. Hopefully he's picking it up like some are saying. ... Anderson holds as well to push it to...

    Worst sports year in Illinois history?

    What's amazing for me is how, aside from the 'olympic sports', 2003-2004 somehow felt worse by April. Football was the sideshow for tailgating and the Marching Illini, Self left the men's team, who lost one at home and had a crushing loss to Duke in the S16, and the women were an afterthought -...

    There we go... ten players on the board! That's not exemplary by any measure, but it ain't bad!

    Well, now seven players have had more than one chance for points, but still only five with more than one FG attempted. I don't think BU had a plan for this. Good luck to him.

    The guys can have fun playing a real ball game without getting hung up on what will or won't be said after the game. Not saying that they all have, but I'm sure that creeps in during a losing streak. Only eight players have scored. Only five have taken more than one shot. With ten minutes...

    Rutgers is having one heck of a bad game for already putting a 7 in the steals column.

    The orange and blue have attempted almost as many threes as they have total shots. I understand that everyone wants in on the party, but we can afford to take smarter looks.

    I get home from work and see that cbs has the Illini up 23-12. Obvious glitch, I hope they [don't] fix it! This is not incredibly prolific scoring on our part... Rutgers isn't getting the ball to or through the hoop. That will change, so let's hope the orange can keep it up! Get those turnovers!
