Missed free throws, dumb turnovers, out of control shots ... and yet somehow still hanging with one of the best teams in the league. Guys, we're young, dumb, and talented just like every other U of I undergrad.

Too bad Kofi can’t finish a shot and the rest of the team can’t shoot.

Why was the clock running while Ayo was letting the ball roll down the floor? WE'RE AT HOME.

Not scoring a field goal for 8 or 9 minutes to start the 2nd half will kill any team.
Not having a plan on what to do against a zone defense will kill any team. This team should salivate when the opponent goes to a zone. The Illini have shooters and interior strengths to kill any zone if they want to prepare and work at it. They will see it at the end of the year with big games on the line and need confidence to attack any zone quickly. For awhile, they did not seem to recognize the zone and then went into snail pace attack and tried driving against it which is suicide. You have to get it into the middle of a 3-2 zone quickly and move it from there quickly....and that NEVER happened.

Yeah, they were not prepared for that tonight. Looked completely lost for 7 minutes... but are still in this game despite that.

We are a good team, but a BIG title and a deep run in the tournament appear out of reach. We had our chances the last 2 games
