    Illinois 73, Ohio State 68 Postgame

    I don't if anybody noticed but at one point Dicky V accidentally called Curbelo an All-American because he is senile but I think its also a sign of things to come.

    Idk if its been said already but I noticed Miller was missing most of the 2nd half after he got blocked a couple times and Grandison got benched and chewed out by a couple team mates too for blowing an assignment

    With the way the game had been going in the 2nd half I thought they were going to call a charge. I was screaming BLOCK at the TV

    When Giorgi went to the line the first time and missed I was just feeling like they weren't going to pull it out but this team is just SPECIAL! I have to say switching Damonte onto Lidell at the end threw them off and such a strong finish! OSU didn't score for almost the last 4 minutes of the...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread

    The good news is there is a culture and expectations already in place of working your butt off and attention to detail. I saw a quote from him talking about he takes pride in his defense and we already know what BU can do to get players motivated on that end.

    Is that Curbelo dancing around across from Damonte? What is he holding? I have so many questions.

    Ayo Dosunmu named Naismith Trophy Semifinalist

    If you haven't already you guys should actually open the tweet and read the replies. Let's just say there is some major clowning on Dickinson and that's an understatement.

    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    I don't think its so much about him going to the NBA next year just that his skill set and athleticism make it a real possibility for the future, which is surprising for an underrecruited D3 transfer.

    The top post from the reddit post-game thread is quite the gem.

    I haven't seen a ton of love for Grandison but he has started to become a big time contributor recently. He didn't score as much today and only took 2 shots but had 6 rebounds including 3 offensive, 5 assists, and 1 steal with only 1 turnover. Hes looking a lot more locked in on defense and not...

    I have to say normally I like the highlights with the radio announcers but I really enjoyed hearing how loud the bench mob was in this game. They always bring so much energy I bet it annoys the hell out of the other team and I absolutely love it. I don't remeber which game it was but one of...

    They referenced senior day so that might have been older clips.

    I don't see regression I see him trying to be more aggressive and make plays buts he's not quite ready for that yet. He had some easy or found opportunities before that made it maybe look like he was farther along than he was. He always looked somewhat lost on defense but you can definitely see...
