We need a consistent 3rd scorer on this team. Kofi and Ayo are basically the offense every game. Does any one else even average double digits in scoring?

Maybe I’m just staying calm because I almost broke my hand watching the Nebraska game... but I see a NW team that is going all out, making prayers, getting help from the zebras, and the best they can do so far is get it really close before we push it back up to ten.

the free throws are terrible, but otherwise it’s just a good team playing their tails off to try to take out a top 5. I’m just happy to finally be Goliath.

We are a good team playing in the best conference in the country. Some of you act like we are playing a D3 pre season game.

Give Collins and NW a little credit. They are challenging every shot...just like Nebby did.

Ayo sucking wind in the corner, he may be under the weather.

Also, we always play to our opponent. Nothing much more, nothing much less.

NW called for 9 more fouls....but they are 6/7 from the stripe...Ilini 8/16. All those misses do not show in turnover column...but that is where they belong. Terrible game by coaches and players tonight after a very good start.

Problem is we say that about every overmanned team we have played this year, save the second half of the first NW game. We are who we are at this point, and that is a team that cannot put an inferior team away.

Alright, I enjoyed that assist. But I'll still be pissed if we lose this game.
