Bryce Golden took OV to Syracuse without commiting. OV to Illinois starts Thursday.

Most Illinois fans don’t correlate Smith to any illegal recruiting. As a matter of fact, lots are amused to see how Mizzou will deal with Smith’s meddling helicopter parents.

If he doesn't get quicker feet on defense, he won't play much at Mizzou either.

Not the worst for the Illini. I will take it.

Another Illini player transferring out:



With Eboigbodin leaving, I believe Illinois is down to 3 players 6'6'' and above for next season.

Ubben practice facility to get $30 million renovation: http://fightingillini.com/news/2018/6/1 ... nsion.aspx

The 20-year-old facility will undergo a facelift that will more than double the square footage of the building. Improvements will benefit both the men's and women's programs and will include additional court space, state-of-the-art sports medicine facilities, an enhanced strength and conditioning area, study spaces, expanded staff offices, and modern student-athlete amenities in new locker rooms and team areas.

Samba Kane has left Champaign due to transcript issues. The Illini hope to have him back when fall classes begin. If not the only guy over 6’6” is Giorgi B!

Edit: Tevian Jones listed at 6’7” so there’s 2 over 6’6”.

Illini add some more size. This time they are going with a guy coming off a March ACL injury rather than signing a guy and then the injury.

Illinois 75 IWU 62 with 3:56 left.

Game has been a slop fest with IWU now out rebounding Illinois.

Another long season.

Illini 83 IWU 67

Lots of turnovers both ways. Illinois got nothing inside and won because they got transition points.

Mark Smith granted waiver & does not have to sit out a transfer year. He can play for Missouri immediately! I have never heard of this happening before. This is really really strange... I know of the three year & then transfer deal like Finke & Maniscalco not having to sit out a year, but never have seen a one year transfer and then immediately play the next season. Wacky wild stuff...

Illini without their leader tonight as Trent Frazier suffered a concussion late in practice yesterday.

Ayo Dosunmu looked really darn good.

Would have been interesting to see how this game would have went had Trent Frazier played tonight.

Ah well. Now they have time to rest up before their first game in Maui which will have a very late start time here in the midwest of 10:30 PM CT on Monday night.

I took a few years break from watching the Illini. Was last night's style the new norm? Or was it an anomaly and they will soon return to the stand-around-and-watch-someone-jack-a-3 style that made me stop watching years ago?

Last night is Underwood’s style. Pressure defense that forces turnovers ... and allows opponents to shoot 60%+ all the time. Georgetown commited a turnover on 28% of their possessions but shot 65% on 2-point shots when they didn’t turn it over.

His style on offense is to get a shot up in first 7 seconds of possession. If not able to do that, it’s then offense with 4 “interchangeable” pieces and a big who plays around elbow area as a screener, passer and shooter.
