    Talen Horton-Tucker commits to Iowa State

    Underwood sure does have your attention :D He isn't green to any of this. Absolutely comical to think otherwise. There was no mistake made by this staff. It may be year 1 at Illinois, but people shouldn't forget it'll be BU's 12th year coaching high level ball in the state, and year 22 in the...

    John Groce at Illinois

    Groce isn't Tim Beckman. Groce had clearance from medical professionals involved to let them play, and undoubtedly a desire from Black and Thorne to get into games. It's not like they entered those games or practiced against their will. Colbert showed some signs of improvement, but there was...

    Pregame: Illinois vs Ohio State, Thursday, January 28th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    Got a feeling our guys really want this one back. Really hoping Thorne can play. I predict Malcolm and Kendrick both play well and get us a W.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January-March 2016)

    This is valid, but I'm not sold on Froling being an impact player in our front court next year. Maybe not for a couple years potentially. I don't care how good he is in the post, it means absolutely nothing if he isn't strong, athletic, quick or can physically assert himself down low. I...

    Would have been interesting to land him, but Froling will be a stretch 4/pick-pop guy. We already have that in Finke. We need a true center, and I'm sure that will be a 5th year transfer for us next year. I'm not crazy about transfers, but I think transfer bigs are fine. Looking at our history...

    Illinois 76, Minnesota 71 (OT) POSTGAME

    Excuse my man crush...but Malcolm with another 20+ point performance! Make that 10 on the season, more than any other player in the conference. Puts him 1st in the conference in ppg and has a healthy lead in most points scored by any player through 20 games. Plenty of areas with this years...

    I'm totally on board with this. It's slightly off topic, but I always thought if Nunn had PG play-making abilities, he'd be pretty attractive to NBA scouts.

    I know the 2017 class is loaded, but how does it compare to classes past? In other words, how loaded is it really? When was the last time there was this much D1 talent coming out of Illinois?
