    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (Week of April 1st)

    Kofi did pass out more toward the end of the year. But it seemed to me to be a decision he made before he even got the ball, and not one based on what the defense was defending that particular entry. I hope he gets better at making that decision. The will is there, I think!

    Adam Miller enters transfer portal

    Adam Miller enters transfer portal

    And yes, I said the same thing about Jordan back in the day.

    Illinois 91, Ohio State 88 OT Postgame

    I was thinking the same thing. In the OSU game, my recollection is that they were defending him tight starting five feet beyond the arc, and had TWO defenders coming up to double or triple him once he got to the three-point line, Ayo taking an undefended thee from five feet beyond the arc is a...

    NCAA Tournament

    Baylor. When BU was interviewed a couple weeks OK, he seemed to be hinting he wanted a rematch. He talked about Miller making a ton of defensive mistakes in that first game, mistakes that he no longer makes now.

    3 overall is fine by me. Want the Gonzaga game to be the championship game. Take down an undefeated team in the championship game? Yes, please.

    Too bad about the SpartansPresentedbyRocketMortgages šŸ˜—. I was kind of hoping to get a rematch with them this year. I love saying their new name! I think recruits will have thoughts about it, too, and I intend to do my best to make sure no one forgets it! Good luck next year...
