    Game Thread: Illinois vs Iowa

    Wieskamp is a really good player. As much as I dislike Iowa, I think they can make a deep run in the NCAA tournament. They can score and Garza is a load.

    Get a good shot, if you miss it and foul and worst case you were still down only 3 and can still tie. Coach of the year my ....

    3/13 Games

    I don’t understand that strategy, Michigan. You weren’t tied.

    And Damonte is no slouch as a defender either... he has a big wingspan. Kofi inside is also a deterrent that most teams don't have.

    Pregame: Illinois at Wisconsin, Saturday, February 27th, 1:00pm CT, ESPN

    3 games in 5 days. Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday. It would be so fitting if the extra game we squeezed it gives us a 1/2 game lead and a BT Championship over ScuM at the end of the season.

    2/21 Games

    Winning percentage isn’t important, I believe. It’s just difference in wins and losses. If we are +4 in wins and -3 in losses, then the title is for the Illini.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Northwestern, Tuesday, February 16th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    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...

    2/14 Games

    Wisky was 1-13 from three in the second half. Make one or two extra three points and the game may have turned out differently. Didn't helps that Reuvers and Potter had 0 COMBINED rebounds. Wow...

    Illinois 77, Nebraska 72 OT Postgame

    If they can beat Northwestern, Nebraska and MSU who are at the bottom, then that would put the Illini at 13-3. A split of the tough 4 games puts them 15-5. That should win the conference.

    Illinois 77, Nebraska 72 OT Postgame

    +2 in the win column -2 in the loss column. Even. We are banking wins that Michigan isn’t.

    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.

    Illinois 75, Indiana 71 OT Postgame

    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...

    12/6 Games

    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. J. PrestonG 24Min 5-6 FG 0-0 2-3 FT...
