I'm glad we won't see the 1-3-1 zone or Princeton offense the past Wildcat teams have played well with especially at home under Carmondy. That said, the Wildcats talent level us on the rise with Collins at the helm. Law, Vasser, Lindsey, and McIntosh is a great start. He might not be Alec Peters or Conner Boehm,, but I'm a Nathan Taphorn fan.Must win game here. Go 2-3 and Illinois is okay. 1-4 and that would be bad.
I'm an IL fan to the bone but born & raised in Evanston and now raising my 3 sons in Evanston. So I'll hope you all can forgive me but I'm an NU season ticket holder. My boys love hoops and its basically a large high school arena so we get to see some big time B1G squads up close.Play like we did tonight, it will be another loss.
I could see Demps going off from three in this one.
NU - 63
IL - 57
I have 8 of us going and we are going to be loud, we need this badly 2-3 is a lot better than 1-4This. I think that would make a huge difference with this particular team. I say we play like we did vs. Maryland, with our backs against the wall, and score a win.
This was the weekly Big Ten coaches call, Groce will have his own conference call tomorrow.The 1/2/15 (pre-OSU game) and 12/29/14 (pre-UM) teleconferences were hosted by U of I Sports Info rather than the Big 10.
Wasn't it also that way (school-level rather than conference) last year, too?
The most serious I have ever been. Starks is the single biggest net negative I have seen play a legitimate role for an Illini team in my short Illini lifetime.hahahahahahahahaha .... wait, you're being serious
