I'm setting the over under on 2nd chance points at 25.5 and taking the over for iowa

I hope AJ starts to develop a better feel for the game...on both ends of the court.

With Nichols, Lucas, Abrams, et al, I'm becoming less convinced he's going to be much of a factor in the rotation next year. Hope that's wrong.

Yes... pretty much looking like a blowout. I don't think it will be a blowout, though. We'll keep it within 12, though Iowa backers are clearly in the driver's seat.

Is there any reason why Groce does not at least try playing a lineup without either of these two terrible point guards we have??? Nunn can guard the other team's PG it would seem and Nunn, Hill and JCL are at least salvageable as ball handlers. For goodness sake give it a try we have nothing to lose!!!!!

AJ hasn't had a whole lot of PT this year. The game feels fast to freshman even under the best of circumstances, and Iowa likes to play faster than normal.

Welp, MH with 4 fouls. Looks like it's going to be an opportunity to give the freshmen reps.

That ridiculous Iowa offensive rebound followed by a uthoff wide open three was so embarrassing.

Iowa is really good. Hadn't watched them much this year, but they do a lot of things well. Of course they are not playing the best opponent today, but their style of play, defense, and offensive system position them for success every game.

i'm worried that MHs 4 fouls may prevent him from getting his usual 6-10 garbage time points today

I'm sorry you had to stay up so late for this...:tsk: I'll give you props for being a loyal fan though:thumb:

I do it everytime on the day games, so it's not too much salt in the wound. Though, this year has been exceptionally hard. But if you've been to Qatar, you would find even the Illini squad this year as "entertainment."

DJW playing with some aggression. If he can keep that up consistently he should be getting more tick.
 
#122      
Better odds: lewis finishing at the rim, or Jon Ekey completing a tip dunk?

Lol.

Ps, really happy to see djw get some tick

Agree. Forget the Finke, JCL, Morgan prediction. Damage control at this point. Waiting to hear the postgame presser.

DJW been doing some nice stuff on both ends today. Keep it up!
