Finally its basketball time! :D :D :D

Randle should be playing but McBride is still detoxing so expect the Illini to still not gem the way that they should. However this is a revenge game (Number 3 on the list - http://www.collegehoopsnet.com/Onions/031804.htm). I want to beat them and beat them badly.

UI - 73
Austin "I have to" Peay - 45

Would this not be absolutely wonderful? :eek:

This would take confidence and an awesome jump shot!! With his ability to drive to the rim he would be unstoppable.

I can only hope!!!

We'll have trouble finding points with randle not seeing alot of minutes and mcbride being out, but we'll be up by 20 with 5 to go and put in some of the younger guys and wind up with a smaller margin.

This will be an easy one.We are still working on the chemistry and that was why Coach arranged the schedule as he did.So many games in so few days early in the season with a soft schedule at first.Coach spoke to this issue in the speech he gave that I attended. He wanted to get them playing time and experience. Cant wait till Randle and Mcbride are both back in the mix. Chester is comming along rather nicely. Welcome Koolkat and GO ILLINI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just a reminder of how fun it is for opponents to play @ the hall. I don't care who is missing from the team. First game of the year with something to prove!

Good luck Austin Peay... :eek:

I sense a pattern from those records, this season it's time to be undefeated again at the Hall.

Start it up, 5 home games in 9 days! :eek:

Is anyone going tonight? I will be watching gamecast on a computer screen, sadly.

Hey JP ,

Where can I catch the webcast? It's probably a members only thing at every site. That sucks!

If you go to ESPN or Yahoo Sports, you should be able to watch the gamecast. It won't be video of the game but you can see the score and stats and all that stuff.
