  • I must say, Illinois under Bruce Weber has always given IU fits.

    I suppose we should have expected this, no matter how bad the Illini has been this year.

    I know this is a gross understatement, but that was not a very good first half. Hoosiers need to start making better decisions.

  • Ugly first half by the Hoosiers. Need to find a way to get better looks and push the tempo.

    I did not expect us to have this much trouble with them, especially with Pruitt and Alexander hardly playing. They shot waaayyyy better than they should have.

    Illinois probably can’t keep this up the whole game, but even if they don’t we still have a lot of work to do.

    Yeah, I am not watching but it seems we are not using EJ as much as we should be. Is he being double teamed?

    IU needs Bassett to create some offense.

    Also DJ to find people quicker out of the double teams.

    Would say Stemler needs to make a shot, but that’s a silly thought.

    Every big three we hit, we let Illinois come down and answer with another big three.

    If Armon was 100%, he hits that floater.

  • bootsie white

    bad offense.

    very bad offense.

    Do Verne and Billy even know what is going on out there?

    Bassett was risky trying to spin away right by the Illini basket.

    i think this is purely illinois circling this game on their schedule over the summer and playing their hearts out. IU looks like they are going to pull it out though. i think a full week of pratice is needed!

    Weber is such a little BEEEOTCH.

    Nice handshake and then he just walks away.

    Go cry now!

    Nice try Illini, but no go….
