Do tell. That was waaaaay before my time. Did he drain one at Huff while standing on University Ave?That’s the longest shot I can remember seeing an Illini player making. Too young to see Starnes as that was long before my time but remember reading about it in a Loren Tate column
I think that GB is probably a lost cause for THIS year. He's in his own head now. He's not making good decisions on either end.Giorgi still in his funk missed a couple of bunnies
They play way better with the bad guy attitude.We've played about as poorly as I figured we would. This team is absolutely schizophrenic at home. The guards don't take care of the ball, the bigs can't score in the paint(actually they really never can), they breakdown defensively.....
Why they can't harness their road mentality and play with it at home is beyond me. Besides the home game vs Purdue, can anyone think of a home game where we put two good halves together?
It's frustrating, but the name of the game is win I guess.
At this point I would agree. But he is simply throwing the ball it the rim and not shooting it. He is releasing it while going up which puts him completely out of rhythm resulting in short arming. I would imagine he is shooting many in practice but it is not transferring to in game results as defenders get him rushing. Its all about confidence and it is lost right now.I think that GB is probably a lost cause for THIS year. He's in his own head now. He's not making good decisions on either end.
He looks uncomfortable, he looks a step slow and he looks like he's playing not to make a mistake. That's a confidence issue.
He needs a reboot, which will probably be in the off-season.
That is indeed odd. Is it because they have same or better records against the teams ahead of us: better v. MD (W) and MSU (W/L); same v. PSU (W) and Iowa (L)?Do we really lose a tie-breaker to Wisconsin for BTT seeding? That seems strange considering we beat them head to head.
There’s 18 minutes left and we’ve missed a ton of open shots. Illini by 14+Looks like this game may go to the wire. Nebraska plays like last year's Illini with no quit and drives hard to the rim putting a lot of pressure on the defense. Interior defenders need to be focused and every possession needs to be a good onel
