Citadel is 0-3 and gives up a lot of points. This one should be like 92-70, but if it ends up something like 73-61, that's no bueno.
Hey! Some were calling for an over 100 point total against Hawai'i, and look how happy we are with that final score. So for now, just win. As BU said in his most recent interview, we are still a young team, so, just win. 4 more home games to fine tune things.

I notice a similarity between the football team and this year's basketball team. Plays a sluggish first half and then the plays like they should play. Az game played toe to toe the first half and then seems like they shut down. The football team against Rutgers or MSU slow first half and then it seems like a light bulb goes off. The same last night in the Hawaii game. Please put together a full game.

Looks like they shoot the 3 pretty well -- their leading scorer (19.7 ppg) hits 41.7 from there and 2nd leading scorer (13.3 ppg) hits 42.1. They hung close against Georgia with 3-point shooting -- 42.4% with 14 made. Not surprisingly, they are undersized. Their leading rebounder is a guard listed at 6-3, 225. But they outrebounded Georgia 43-36 with that guard getting 11 boards. It was the turnovers that killed them that game -- 22. It will be Citadel's second game in as many nights, so I would like to think the Illini can win this handily and get the bench players some time. Illini 89-71.

There is "just win" and an underwhelming win. Hawaii is a much better team than The Citadel. No reason at all to score less than 80 against them.

Dats da mini-Ayos. Full size Ayos da score would be: Ayo - 212, Entire Citadel Team - 3 (all free throws)
Disagree. Desperation 3 point half court shot at the buzzer to spoil the shutout.

Next 3 games are all big time cupcakes. BIG/ACC Challenge game should be good. Thankful that's at home.

Giorgi should be shooting lots of 3 balls in this one.
