So U of I didn't qualify for the tournament again, right?

;)

Just kidding. But seriously, the Illini are certainly trending up.

Bradley is one of the few that qualified. :)

Crazy year. Sad too.

What could have been!

B10 Network ran the 2005 Arizona/Illini game last night. Remember that game well, or that night. On that night I was at OSF recovering from cancer surgery earlier in the day. I remembered little of the game, except for what my wife was trying to tell me. Even nurses and doctors were going crazy.

So very happy your recovery went well and you’re here to tell us about that day.
Take care and stay healthy, my friend!

Jones expected, Griffin is a big surprise.
Griffin was pushed by his mom to transfer after his freshman season but he stayed. She’s been at it again since he’s been quarantined with her. Thinks he needs ball in his hands more.
Griffin’s dad also caught off guard as he was on a CU radio show two days ago praising staff and Alan’s development.

Also an ex-girlfriend tweeted some dirty laundry 2 days ago and it was ugly, ugly. Thanks

With Griffin and Tevin transferring out, if Ayo turns pro, then Giorgi will be the only player still on the team from the 2018 recruiting class.

He needs to fine tune his feet and ball possession skills. I'm guessing June 2nd, he may opt out.

Derek Piper seems to think so as well:



He didn't mention signing with an agent so he can still come back if he chooses to.
