    Michigan State 70, Illinois 69 POSTGAME

    Also, just to add. I’m from San Diego and go to colleg in Ohio. This was my first Illinois game ever. Can honestly say this program has more grit, heart, and love for each other than I could have thought watching them for the past 10+ years on TV. Probably the most heartbreaking game I can...

    Michigan State 70, Illinois 69 POSTGAME

    Was at game. Illinois fell way flat in first half, officials blew multiple calls in second half. Tragic ending. Let’s hope Ayo is okay. Still, even with loss, I don’t know the last time I’ve seen this much passion at Assembly Hall

    I don't know if this has been said, but has Ayo going 6 overall in 2020 draft. East Lansing's local newspaper had Illinois number 2 in big Ten preseason rankings. People high on Illini.

    Are we out on Kofi Cockburn? I remember there being a lot of hype a while ago and people thought we might have a shot. I haven't heard him mentioned recently

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (July 2018)

    Seeing that list makes me so sad. A combination of heartbreaking losses (Wilkes, Nolley, Castleton) and wasted OV's (Sou, Thamba, Kisunas) really hurt our flexibility down the stretch. Gotta save OV's for players we have a >50% chance of actually signing.

    This is the bullseye the Illini needed. Ayo was alaways in our favor, but truly WINNING a recruiting battle for an instant impact player over Zona, USC, and other schools closer to home and in a better state in exactly what we needed. Now add Feliz or Hinson and this is a helluva class for a...

    Kane has jumped up recruiting boards drastically (some now call him a 4*), and I think that giving him college facilities, coaches, and attention will help shoot up his game and will end in a starting spot fairly early on. Also can shoot far better than Ebo

    My prediction for next year's starting lineup: Frazier Ayo Jones Kipper Ebo When Conference Play Begins: Frazier Ayo Jones Kipper Kane (Finke, DMW, Griffin, Bez strong contributors off bench) Could see Griffin starting by conference play if Jones doesn't come. Please discuss/tell me why I'm...

    Yeah I agree. Sunny and 70 year round. Still hoping he's in O&B, not that ugly maroon.

    I don't understand why you guys don't think Nolley is leaning Illinois. He posted his Final 2 bracket, eliminating Illinois and GSt. I truly don't believe GSt ever had a shot, essentially narrowing it to UI, VT, and GA. Him deleting his Final 2 bracket but keeping his Final Four bracket strongly...
