Illinois 86, Nebraska 70 Postgame

Baltimore, MD
Love the big win on Senior Night for Damonte, Trent, and Zach. Enjoyed seeing the balanced scoring tonight and so many guys stepping up in Ayo's absence. Kofi is a force as always and we got good Curbelo tonight (outside a short stretch). I loved seeing Miller take charge in the first half and make some plays and I'm excited to see how he progresses over the summer.

Tonight was a small glimpse of what life without Ayo may be like and we stepped up and handled a team we should without much issue. (Obviously Kofi is a big factor for next year too)

Nice to see us pull away, dropping 86 without Ayo. Yes, against Nebraska, but it was dicey until half way through the 2nd half. Nice bounce back game, and hopefully AM, AC, Grandy, and Kofi (free throws) gained some much needed confidence going into the tough stretch to end the season!
Nice win to ease the pain of the Ayo injury news. Pray he is back in the next few games, and 100% by selection Sunday.
Great win and should help confidence of team to know they can perform well with Ayo. They’ll need to build on that against better team(s) if Ayo remains out. Not going to read too much into game as far as what it could mean as predictor for next year.

Huge win for the team on senior night with no Ayo . This is a very , very nice win for the team (don`t care if Nebraska or whoever it was) and confidence builder moving forward . Huge plus minutes for multiple players on this team that will be needed come "dancing" time in March .
Don`t care what any one says right now , but this team just showed some "CHOPS" in this contest ,,,, well done young men .
