That was a fantastic half of basketball. The Illini defense caused the MSU team that lost to Northwestern to show up so far tonight.

Bruh.

Tell me Joey Hauser isn't Stan from the Eminem video who plays like a poor man's Brian Scalabrine.

I think the only freshman that plays much is Goode. I doubt others play more that a min or two of at all. Unless we are losing badly and I hope that doesn't happen.
Looking so far I’d lose this bet… thought we’d see some more minutes for the other two. Good call. (or Goode call ;))

He’s playing great, too!

They had some baskets rim out. Looks like they we'll feed the big men or attack on the P&R for a pull up J at the FT line or kickout for 3.

First one to 65 wins.

Bossman ForDunk, aka The Beast from Brussels, and Omar Champayne are giving us everything they have in Kofi's absence. Way to fight! That and great guard play, especially from Trent, are keeping us in control. These guys are all making Illinois basketball fun to watch. Keep this intensity in the second half, and we can defend this lead. Also, I'm sure recruits have taken notice of the love and loyalty Ayo shows for the program, taking time out from a busy NBA career to attend multiple home games.

Izzo’s no dummy. Expect a much better 2nd half by MSU. We’re gonna see how good we are in the next 20 minutes.

I would love to see us get them in foul trouble early here.
We need to drive more anyway tonight.

Not many fouls called 1st half.
Not saying b/c we're winning, but that was a well officiated half. I like this crew, wish we had them more for our games

Would to see us really ramp up the defensive pressure early. A couple early turnovers might break the spirit of TMSSPBRM.

I just think Goode is built like a man. Plus Podz has a ton of skill but it's a huge step up from small high schools in Wisconsin to the B10. If our team was not loaded at guard and in contention he would be playing. He knew that we had the guys on our roster for this year. His time and Velos will come for that matter.

65 might just be the number tonight.........

I see MSU scoring 40-something in the 2nd half.
