Tonight is one of the bigger games of the BU era for ILLINI and BU. This could set up to crash our season if this game is lost.....
I don't know how big this game is in the scope of things, but it will be one of the better barometers of where we are at and where we're going.

Generally:

Painter>>>>BU
UI talent>>>>PU talent
PU intensity>>>>UI intensity

Toss up for me.

Yes, we are a bad 3 pt shooting team. But against MSU we took 28 of them. That number needs to be under 20 and ideally around 12.

We were 1-11 from 3 against Michigan, but scored 71 pts. Why? Because we attacked relentlessly and never settled. I think that's what we see again today.

Coming off the bench cold, trying to get into the game against those already warmed up and then hit 3s is not a simple task. I say let's give AG a chance to start and see what we get. Coming off the bench to play D and rebound (DMW) is much easier.
I hear you....but IMO it shouldn't matter when you get on the floor...you are either a knock down shooter or not.

All that said, I like AG and his energy and hops...he is scrappy. I believe he will improve his % over time, but the hypothesis: ..'...starting him will make his shots go down ...' seems like a stretch. JMO. But I'm all for giving him starter minutes and starts.

Against Michigan GB and KC were not 5 for 22.

I am sure we will win this one....we are very well at "dapping" people up, coming off the bench?
