    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Ok...how's this...there's a 99.9% chance that he does not get drafted in the first round of next years NBA draft.

    Penn State 83, Illinois 76 POSTGAME

    I also think there may be a correlation between the lack of bench playing time and our recent struggles shooting the ball. It seems to me in our best wins of the year against Maryland and Michigan St, Underwood was making it a priority to getting everyone involved early. We were cycling in 3...

    Penn State 83, Illinois 76 POSTGAME

    Coach Chambers had a perfect offensive game plan to beat us. Spread us out and drive to the basket. I'm generally shocked that more teams do not make that a higher priority. When teams get in trouble with us its when they try and make multiple passes within their half court offense and...

    I didn't understand why it was a shooting foul. Feliz fouled him reaching in on the rebound, not on the shot.

    And for the 100th time you are wrong. They need to earn their playing time in practice. It seems pretty obvious that they are not able to outperform AJ and Kip who in your own words are every other dlteams least athletic player. If Tev and Grif can't be better than those two every day they...

    Florida Atlantic 73, Illinois 71 OT POSTGAME

    The only reason we were in that game was Frazier going off for 28 pts in the second half.

    Florida Atlantic 73, Illinois 71 OT POSTGAME

    I think you're just a little smitten. Obviously we stink right now. But we are a great program with a ton of tradition. We play in arguably the best basketball conference in the country. The narrative that needs to stop is that it can get worse if someone else comes in and there are more...

    Basketball Coaching Staff / Coaching Carousel Thread

    I completely disagree that we can sink any lower. This is a great program, great university and one of the best recruiting regions in the country. They could bring almost anyone in and they will not be as bad as this coaching staff and players are right now. The needle will only go up when...

    They can't beat Florida Atlantic at home why would you think they could beat a Big Ten team?

    Missouri 79, Illinois 63 POSTGAME

    What is our O/U for B10 wins? I am guessing it is maybe 4.5. I think 4.5 is generous. I am going with 2.5

    Illinois 77, UNLV 74 POSTGAME

    Really dislike underwood dressing down Feliz like that toward the end of the game. It’s a bad look, especially after the performance Feliz had today. I immediately thought the same thing. You could read his lips "What the F@@k you doing out here". Terrible look! I don't see other coaches...

    Ohio State 77, Illinois 67 POSTGAME

    Every time I watch a game I believe there are multiple calls that go against us that really frustrates me. But when the game is over and we lose by double digits I will never blame the refs.

    Illini Basketball 2018-2019

    Guenther decided to go a different direction and pursue a candidate fitting a different mold, Weber, who IMO was a terrible fit. I think your right about Weber not being a good fit, but I think Weber was and is a better X's and O's coach than Self.

    Nebraska 75, Illinois 60 POSTGAME

    We would be way way better if we had JCL, Black, Finke, Ebo and Lucas. I'd bet most would like to see Williams on this team over what we have.

    Nebraska 75, Illinois 60 POSTGAME

    From what I see most teams are now tightening up around the three point line on Trent giving him lanes to drive. The problem for him is that he is still left handed dominant. And on those drives teams have no fear on rotating quickly to stop the drive. Trent is a scorer and not a facilitator...

    Nebraska 75, Illinois 60 POSTGAME

    I think this falls completely on Underwood! Bad offensive and defensive schemes, bad player retention and bad recruiting. I like Giorgi as much as the other fan boys on here but he doesn't start for another Big Ten team and probably can't start for any other Power 5 team.

    Xavier 83, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    Not sure what some of you want DaMonte and Kipper to do. This offense is either Trent, Ayo or Felix trying to score under 7 seconds or running some lame motion offense in which they never get a touch unless it's to pass the ball to the other side. We were hoping that Kipper would be Black...

    Iowa State 84, Illinois 68 POSTGAME

    I am quickly souring on Underwood. I was one of the very last people still on board with the previous coaching staffs. But if BU does not change philosophically soon he will not be around after next year. The games are being called so close that BU defensive style just is not sustainable...

    The 2011-12 Starting Lineup & Rotation

    I am actually scared to death about next years team. To think or expect that we will get any real production of the incoming freshman is setting up for failure. And unfortunately thats what we will have to do. What scares me the most is the bench. When ML gets his second foul with the first...
