Nope. Gotta stop you there. Not a single game where "he has done zip". He just hasn't scored. I get it....so does everyone else. Including his head coach.

He might be the most impactful, scoreless player in CBB history!
Well you are certainly a big supporter. Props to you. It's not like we have many better options.

11 games over .500 and tied for 1st place in the Big Ten going into February 😍

I’m incredibly impressed by our teams ability to make just the right plays at the right time in the close games during this win streak.
DMFW and Dre were so clutch tonight in different ways.

Go Illini!

It amazes me that people can still talk about Tev as if he is key contributor and at times question DMW’s worth and contributions to the team. Hell Tyler Underwood outplayed Tev tonight. And any watching can see DMW’s value to the team — and I’m not just talking about tonight.

I like that this team can have anyone of 6 players step up and contribute in a serious manner.

Also, who knew minnesota had the most sour grapes fans in the big 10. I've never seen such a large collection of fans (on a message board) think the refs were biased in a game....when the winning team had more fouls....and the losing team was in the bonus substantially earlier in the second half. 🤔🤔🤔

He took a horrible shot in transition tonight and then threw it away on the next position.

I'm happy to admit I wish TJ would have been accountable and consistent enough this year to at least split the minutes. What a great substitution rotation that would give BU...offense/defense...and late in the game matchups.

I just don't want to take away from what DMFW is doing in spite of his offensive struggles.

I will say that if the tables were turned, I/we would be furious about that foul call.

One of the sweetest "ugly" wins in a while. Great to see Kofi bang with Oturo and show emotion. He will need it against Garza! While Ayo didn't score a bunch, he controlled the game at critical moments with his isolation. While I have voiced my frustration with DMW this year, there is no denying that he was a beast today! Dre's angles on his drives are unbelievable. Our defense had great energy! TJ looks completely lost and ineffective. Really a disappointment so far! The happiest guy in the building should be AG. I am hopeful that he comes out a smarter player with the same energy level. We really need him the balance of the year and going into March! So much fun to be an Illini fan right now! :shield:

Great win. Great streak. DMW played great Def. Andres was the engine tonight. You see the trouble Ayo had with a bigger defender on him. He missed some shots he normally makes. I think Is. will be our toughest game to date. Md. Is beating them now.

We shot 33%. Only 20% on 3's. This was a great defensive win that was highlighted by DMFW. Feliz was a huge key. We did get a few nice calls, but not as bad as we've had against us on the road many times. Long story short, 7 in a f'ing row in this year's BIg Ten. Unbelievable!

He's like our mini-Rodman with less tats and piercings.

Best moment of the game for me was in the 1st when TU was in the game, guy behind us is moaning about how terrible it is for him to be in the game. Guys yells "this is horrible having Tyler Underwood in the game!" literally seconds before he took that bone crunching charge. My friend stood up and loudly said without turning around "That's Tyler Underwood baby!" Guy shut up the rest of the game.

Tyler did what he was supposed to while he was in there. Props to him
