Makes sense on the players that have joined up so far. Looks like LaTulip is the one putting it all together and will be acting as a coach.Just occurred to me that all 3 players on the roster so far were on the team in 2014-15, along with soph Nunn and frosh Black. There was some talent there, although we were pretty young and the young guys got much better as time went on. Pretty disappointing that group couldn’t get to the tourney. Would be nice to see them make some noise together.
That was the team where the two major conference transfers - Starks (Oregon St) and Cosby (Seton Hall) - came in and couldn’t hit the broad side of the barn with a basketball. They both looked like they forgot how to shoot during their year off. Had been double digit scorers at their old schools and couldn’t do anything at Illinois.Just occurred to me that all 3 players on the roster so far were on the team in 2014-15, along with soph Nunn and frosh Black.

Reading this article.....makes me wonder what would have been if we passed on Richmond and took Rice in 2010....I always thought there was an unspoken shooter's ego conflict between RR and MH....obviously I was mistaken. Great to hear they are regrouping. This tournament should be very fun to watch.Great article about Rice looking forward to TBT and back on his time as an Illini.
Loved him on Illini and it looks like he’s developing more as a PG and is doing great overseas but still thinking of pursuing NBA. Awesome Champaign product, super athlete, competitive and fun to watch.
Why are you all liking this? He’s not playing for Illinois. Last year we didn’t have a team, so ok. But now that we do, he’s playing once again for OHOWIHATEOHIOSTATE??Brad Sturdy Retweeted
BREAKING: We have one more new roster addition for now. He's an Illinois alum, but he looked great in Scarlet & Gray last summer. Welcome back to the squad, Demetri McCamey! [URL='https://twitter.com/Meechi32']@Meechi32[/URL]
It’s not much comfort to me, but I liked that in his brief video he only mentioned repeating and making money as reasons for joining them. I respect both of those goals. I’d be more upset if talked about camaraderie, friendship, loyalty or some other reason to justify playing for them.
