Curbelo tries to be the whole team, doesn’t like sharing the ball.

WTF is up with this guy. No doubt his loose and selfish play cost them those last 3 minutes or so.

So that 10 turns out to not be a ranking. It's the combined BBall IQ of the entire Illini team.

And I'm including the coaching staff.

I just watched the last 4 mins or so, but I couldn’t believe how bad he looked.

I guess I understand the hype with him - but I just don't see it. You have to be able to shoot the basketball at least a little bit. He is five for 41 all time from three. Even the 2021-22 Bradley Braves think that is bad.

That’s as bad a finish I’ve seen since the Knicks vs Reggie Miller.

The Illini will be fine. They're still missing a few players. Also Marquette's style is one that will give teams fit all year, especially early on. Morsell is a player for them and a great pickup for Shaka Smart. He's the perfect fit for that system.

My first look at Illini. As a Bradley fan, was hoping for some real basketball. Not seeing much tonight against Cincinnati
Thanks J.J. for what I consider sound advice!

Cincinnati showing that all you have to do is double Kofi and Illinois' offense becomes nonexistent.

At least they got the win tonight against Weber and K-State. Seeing Weber's team go on a cold shooting spell in the 2nd half brought back memories of seeing that when he was in Champaign.

With the Illini performance tonight (albeit with no Trent and no Curbelo) against a UTRGV team that Arizona beat at home by 50+, the game against the Wildcats oughta be something to see.

Illinois has the look of a middle of the pack Big 10 team, 8-10 seed in the tournament, and first weekend participant.

They need Curbelo to mature mentally.
