I think Illini will come out ready to play. All Coach BU needs to do is show them the first half of the first NU game a couple of times where they were down by 15 at halftime. Show them Northwestern is capable of beating this Illini team unless they come out ready to play.
There are no...
One way to look at it:
If Michigan doesn't play all 20 games, they don't have opportunities to get wins either. Let's say they play 17 games and finish 13-4 with that rough schedule. We will still win the Big Ten Title if we go 15-5 or 16-4.
Just get wins baby.
I’m still cursing at the refs. That was unbelievable. What a way for the team to stick together and show mental toughness when it was 8 against 5.
Tough game for Ayo, had a lot of bounces not go his way and there was a lot of contact on his drives that was not called. Kofi got hit a lot too...
Checked the Box Score for Preston's stat line. Very efficient, and flirted with a triple double in 24 minutes. I'm guessing he realized he didn't need to score or the other team was over-extending coverage on him and Preston went into distributor mode.
