Bill Walton doing the Illinois game tonight once again sounds like a D-Bag. I think he smokes a lot of weed before he does the game. He is just unbearable to listen to doing a game.

I actually enjoy Walton at this point in his career. His play be play man basically just has to play the straight man to all of Walton's antics. Dave Pasch when he calls games with Walton is especially a great foil for Bill Walton.

Had a 3 in the air for the lead with about 20 seconds remaining against #3 ranked team. Frazier with 29 (27 in 2nd half) coming back from concussion.

Nichols with 2 points and 0 rebounds was brutal. Almost as brutal as Bill Walton’s work.

Just never know what you will get with Kipper Nichols. Usually plays out of control.
Played good enough to win over Zags. Cyclones are just a better team.

If Underwood can keep these guys playing together, soon the ball will bounce their way. That shot was there to beat the Irish. Looked like half way down before bouncing out. Tough loss.

Still can’t understand why they give up a true home game to go to Chicago to a half filled place to play a conference game.

Hopefully this is the last of those for awhile until the program gets back to respectability.

Kofi Cockburn commits to Illini. Ranked 32nd best recruit nationally according to ESPN. The beginning of something big hopefully. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basket ... s-illinois

Even with about 30 seconds to play, I'd have bet the deed to grandma's ranch they would lose that game. What a great win, especially in the Garden. Those two subs had the games of their lives. It was said that one of the two is from Chandler, AZ. How the heck did he find his way to Cham-bana? (And why was he suspended for 8 games?) Life is good when your shots are dropping. Best and most entertaining Illini game I've seen in ages. Terrible loss for the Terps, who are a projected 3-seed in the NCAAs. (I think)

Likes the weed, and flunked some drug tests. Mandated 1/4 season suspension.

Interesting article in today’s PJS and the Illini recent success. Underwood made decision to step away from certain players and take pressure off them. Just let them get confidence back. Now you don’t hear that too often.

I want Illinois basketball to get back to the point where beating a top 10 opponent isn't such a surprise that anyone feels inspired to rush the court.

Giorgi breaking Deon Thomas' single game scoring record for a freshman in the OT win over Rutgers yesterday.

Illini only have 3 games left against teams currently ahead of them in the standings. Is it possible Illinois finishes 10-10 in conference?

Not to look too far ahead, but based on the image shown in this tweet, it appears Illinois will be playing in the Emerald Coast Classic during the 2020-2021 season:

To me it looks like 19-20 season.

It'll be 2020-2021 season. Emerald Coast Classic normally only has 4 Power 5/mid-major schools play in the championship round of this tournament. They play low-majors at home prior to playing in this tournament.
