I am perfectly fine with Ayo out tonight. I actually prefer he doesn't play against OSU. We will be given the benefit of doubt. We already have a great seed in the BTT. What more could we hope for right now? Ayo has time to heal, and there is no chance for more injury. Meanwhile, the others on the team will play their hearts out. Go Illini!

I hate to say it, but I would keep Ayo out until the Big Dance. For as often as he goes to the hole and for as much contact as he takes on these drives, it might take only one hit to the face these last two games and the B1G Tourney and one of the best players in U of I basketball history would never play in the NCAA tournament. That would be a shame.

This seems like a bad idea. The first round is over 2 weeks from now. No doubt rust develops over that long of a period.

Agreed. I think he plays against OSU. That game is more important than tonight's game.

AYO will probably play in OSU.. that game matters more than this game.. I thought AYO would play tonight.. but we are focused on BTT and NCCA championships not the regular season.. thinking like an elite coach right now, not a short term coach

The reality of this is that he could be completely healed, zero issues....and have the exact same injury happen on any given play.
