    Game Thread: Illinois vs Kansas State

    If our best offense this year is Plummer taking heat check 3s, I simultaneously don’t hate it and in some ways do hate it.

    BBV needs to play more if he’s going to go after rebounds, because he’s one of the only ones who’s willing to recently.

    Turnover to end the half. Fitting.

    I’m almost positive Cincinnati is not a top 20 team.

    Cincinnati 71, Illinois 51 Postgame

    Offense can look putrid, but you’re gonna lose me when the team refuses to show heart, and once Cincinnati went up 11, no one on our team cared anymore. Just a complete 180 from the culture Brad preaches, and it’s not like he showed any heart tonight either. Just didn’t expect this group to lay...

    You’re going to have a hard time convincing me we are a top 25 team after tonight. It’s not like shots aren’t falling… we aren’t getting a semblance of a look on offense.

    Sounds like we really needed the week off re: Belo actually getting some practice in and Hutch getting healthy. The sour taste of Marquette is starting to go away as the Golden Eagles look surprisingly solid and after remembering Belo’s rustiness was in part due to concussion protocols. I hope...

    Was going to make a similar point on Marquette as they just picked up 2 pretty solid wins to get to 5-0, and if they beat the Bonnies on Sunday, they’re probably a top 25 team come Monday. Kenpom doesn’t mean a ton until everyone’s played 9 or 10 games.
