Illinois Alumni Team in TBT

The guy I really wanted, Luke Sikma, went back to play in the German League tournament & his team actually won the whole thing. He would have been great on our team- maybe next year!
If he isn't available maybe we can get Jack (Sikma).
 
Anybody see a box score for yesterday’s game.. sorry if it is already out there..
 
I missed yesterday's game (unfortunately). That will happen no more. Certainly was fantastic to beat the OSU alums and advance to the elite 8 in THE Basketball Tournament!!! LaTulip and group got it going right now!!!!!

Very fun game to watch! Great to see these guys do well. Good team play. BG definitely was pressing in the beginning of game, but he definitely changed up his play and had some real good moments on offense/defense rebounding. Should carryover you next game, hopefully. Everyone had their moments and contributed to the win.
 
Would’ve won going away if it wasn’t for the refs. Missed Goaltending, Fouling Diebler on a half court shot, Craft riding Feliz, 6 points in 5 seconds on two made threes with away from the ball foul, Craft moving on charge call, and that’s what I can remember.
I’m not sure, but I thought I saw goaltending rules are Euro style; eg can rebound it if it is on the rim. Guessing backboard would be ok. Hope they clarify before next match. But, instinct will probably not have them do this unless they played in Europe. Let’s see if I can find the rules...

Ok so the initial shot would be goaltending as normal. It’s after it hits the rim, can touch, not wait until out of cylinder.

Goaltending- A player cannot touch the ball on its downward flight towards the rim, nor can a player reach through the basket to play, or alter the flight of the ball.
i. However, once the ball strikes the ring, any player can play the ball. Once the ball is in the basket, the offense can no longer violate.

I wonder if the Egwu goaltending call would of been a block, if he did not put his hand into basket from underneath, but could have swiped it away if it was bouncing around. Well, and Diebler made the basket anyways.

Efrem Winters fan I recall walking thru Market Place Mall when I was a kid and I walked right past Efrem - he was casually eating a bag of potato chips and had the biggest stride I had ever seen at that point in my life. 😃 Re: this team if we can get anything going from Garrett (I’m expecting nothing from Finke or Black - LeRon is a shell of himself from his final year at UofI ugh so hard to watch) this team will be a very tough out. It’s basically a 6 man rotation but these guys seem to have very good stamina (Dayton has 8 guys as well just FYI).
 
Can you imagine House of Paign if Dosumnu had got an agent, committed to the draft, and used TBT to showcase his talent? HoP would be unstoppable (not that they're stoppable now). I think Daum's play will get him an NBA contract. Feliz has definitely played himself into, at least, a higher level league and more money. Dosumnu would have blown it up!
 
Potentially foresee Dayton's length being problematic for today's game. Might need someone to step up big today. And I may be completely wrong. 🤷‍♂️

I think Feliz is a better pro right now than Ayo. (Yes I know Ayo isn't technically pro)
 
Defense on point to start. Liked Malcolm's close out during transition on the perimeter. Feet don't look as heavy.

What seems to be the heart of this team's success is not only the offensive consistency of Daum and Feliz but that they embrace and understand that defense is their ticket to the title. They all play team defense with effort and focus. Most of these teams do not have that throughout the roster.
