Does Jamall Walker get credit for being Illinois' first African American coach?

I would say yes, since they are actual games that count.

Illini up 41-24 at half. Hill with 13 points in the 1st half and Black with 11.

No Finke in tonight's game due to a toe injury that he's apparently been dealing with since January.

9:30a Saturday would be the perfect start time.

I'm rooting for a deep UIUC run in the NIT to force that really awkward "well he did win the NIT" convo in regards to Walker.

They will say he won it with Groce's players.

ISU hosts UCF at 6p on ESPN Monday night to start the Illinois doubleheader which hopefully leads to an Illini trip to Redbird Arena. :td

Should be fun Monday night. Ticket sales are going really well it appears on the ISU site. Tacko Fall will be fun to watch (7'5" C for UCF) along with former Redbird Nick Banyard.

With all the upsets in the NIT, is Illinois the highest seeded team remaining?

I'm pretty sure that is correct.

Edit: Correct. There are a couple 4s left. Illini only 1, 2 or 3 left. Amazing.

Many teams lay down in the NIT though. Some teams seize the opportunity, but for most Power 5 teams, they'd rather be on spring break. That's true even for teams outside the P5...there was a famous episode between Bradley and Drake I believe where a Drexel player while lining up for free throws, told the Bradley guy next to him, "We want to lose worse than you."

Only got to listen to last 5 minutes. Cut 19 deficit to 6 and 3 times missed 3-pointers.

Anyone other than Hill make the flight to Orlando?
