Duke's biggest guy is a 7-foot, 243-pound freshman, and no one else is even close. If Kofi's getting drafted this year, he needs to look dominant in this game.
Don't forget Duke gets top talent too... freshman or not! Just saying! But I agree! Better win that battle!

Gotta play great teams to have a strong run in the tourney. Really really really looking forward to this game. This game should tell us if we’re for reals this year.

Wonder how many games we will get to play before we play Duke...could make a big difference for us

Good question. Is the B10 waiting to see what non con games can be scheduled before releasing the B10 schedule? Hard to believe we are still waiting.

I'd rather it be the first game of the season. Our experience vs. their freshmen.
I’m sure it will be early, right? Can’t be that many non conference games this year. I think 3rd or 4th game for us would be the sweet spot.

Prediction:
Ayo hits game winner, Kofi gets called for an illegal screen at the other end of the floor with no one in the vicinity because refs
In all seriousness, very excited for this one, should be a great game!

They do - but it takes Freshman talent a while to come up to speed. Early season game in an empty Cameron with a very experienced Illini team is not a bad scenario. Just wish it was at home.
I think this is the big point here, if there was ever a season to draw Duke at Cameron, it's this one, we (likely) have the best team we've had in over a decade and we get Duke when there will (likely) be little to no fans allowed.

Oh what a birthday present winning that game would be.

If rumors are true we play Nov. 25,26,27 at home then Dec. 2 vs Baylor. We might be able to get a game in on Dec. 6 before the Duke game.
