    I have to laugh at these Harding/Iowa jokes because, on one hand, I’m an Illini fan, but I’m also a Moline alum, so I can’t go all-in on hating Harding. But as soon as he committed, I knew these jokes would be made and he’ll be absolutely hated by Big Ten opponents. On one hand I’ll love it, on...

    He's a really flashy point guard. High basketball IQ, team player, great passer. But he lacks size and does not make up for it with supreme athleticism. I believe a Power 6 school will eventually offer, but I don't think it'll be Illinois, and as much as it pains me as a Moline alum, I hope it's...

    Definitely sarcasm. Everyone knows how good the Metro East is. Liddell, Mark Smith, Malachi Smith, Pickett, Goodwin, etc.

    The world was around before the year 2000. We had some very high-ranked players during the Henson/Collins recruiting days.

    This isn't a knock on you, specifically, but I absolutely adore the completely arbitrary numbers game that posters play with regard to minutes predictions. It's as useless as it is arbitrary, which is to say "completely".

    Do you mean Braden Huff? He’s going to Gonzaga. I’m guessing we just got beaten out by a good program. I honestly don’t recall us being much in the mix for him.

    Houston 68, Illinois 53 Postgame

    This was a brutal matchup for us and it came to fruition, but not before we battled. Credit to the freshmen for keeping us in it. Thank you to Trent, Da’Monte, Alfonso, and Jacob. And if it’s the end for Kofi, thank you. We need big wings. Let’s hope Ty Rodgers fills that role.

    We are going to need to hit shots. Need more of Plummer. Frazier needs to get going. Our defense has done enough to keep us within striking distance. But we need to make a push before halftime, just like the other night.

    Alright, boys, just win! As we proved the other night, that is all that matters! We need double-digit 3-pointers to pull it off. We are capable of that. And rebound, rebound, rebound!
