DMW is hurt Not that it makes a diff now, but someone is going to have to step up.

There is a giant gaping hole in this lineup, and he is Ohio and he is named EJ Liddell. The difference between real title aspirations and scrapping for a #22 poll ranking. I will always wonder what could have been.........

Absolutely pathetic display from the tip. Embarrassed at this point. Have some pride for goodness sake.

This team has tons of potential but I'm wondering if it's ever going to click this season. I can't tell if this team is failing to improve or actually regressing at this point. I just know it's not getting better.

There's a team in Illinois thats going to get their a$$es chewed about... right... NOW!
 
#190      
it hurts me to say this but we are ranked #12 talentwise, but maybe 50 or 60 in energy and basketball IQ.

Hopefully Whitman has to write a big check to NW for locker room repairs after the halftime "speech".

Anybody notice Ayo's last name is misspelled on his jersey?

The problem is that we only have 1 offensive player who can create his own shot. And we only have 2 offensive players who are truly threats.

Like seeing Brad lighting a fire.

Nah, this has nothing to do with the refs...this is an Illinois team that didn't come to play
This seems to be a reoccurring problem with this team. Slow starts, and turnovers just out of control. They simply are not playing well and the effort level is terrible.

Turnovers are absolutely destroying us. I don't know how many times we can throw telegraphed high lobs to Kofi against a zone before we finally realize that it may not be such a good idea.

Get someone in the middle of the zone. It's not exactly rocket science.

That was our worst half of basketball this season. I wouldn’t want to be in that locker room right now 🗑. I’d say we do better in the 2nd half but it won’t be enough for a win, unless ayo saves us

We got them in foul trouble, they went to the zone, and we had no answer. Whether that's on Underwood or the players I have absolutely no idea, but it's embarrassing.
