Illinois basketball 2019-20

Post by illini25 »

Illini get a PG commitment from their “ plan A” target. Curbelo rated 55 and 9th best PG by 247.

Curbelo ranked a bit higher by Rivals at 46 and 8th PG.

So the sentiment is that he's in a holding pattern for Ayo to leave/get drafted.

I don't understand the "I don't want to actually compete" mentality. He wants the lead role just given to him, even if it means the team is better off with multiple options.

Losing to Miami tonight is unacceptable, better players yet they seem to be having the same result. They were not ready to go during the first half which is why they lost. Miami is an above ave. team yet if Illinois is suppose to be having a break out season and cannot afford to be losing home games period.

Miami also couldn't miss for much of the first half of that game. If Illinois ends up coming back and winning that game, then there's an entirely different conversation to be had.

Home court advantage is back to its norms in the B1G.

They really really needed to steal that game from Maryland last weekend. Lost opportunities may bite them in March.

Not a conference game loss but Michigan are really undisciplined at their guard level.

Dosunmu will be lucky to go pro overseas. He values the ball like Tyson, Holyfield and Philip Rivers value condoms.

Illini get a HUGE win tonight at the Kohl Center, defeating Wisconsin 71-70. It is the Illini's first win over the Badgers since January 2, 2011, a 69-61 win in Champaign. It is the Illini's first win at the Kohl Center since February 9, 2010, a 63-56 win. It is also the Illini's first time scoring more than 70 points against the Badgers since January 25th, 2005, a 75-65 win, also at the Kohl Center.

Underwood gets a big road win. I find it hard to say a team win because he does have many individuals that don’t necessarily play team ball, pointing to their guard play. But a win is a win. They have a home game this weekend against Rutgers who is no longer a pushover. Let’s see how the Illini respond.

Well as TAS likes to say, road wins are never trivial.

Here's a couple more stats for you all:

-Last school year Illinois defeated Wisconsin in basketball and football: 2002-03 (Football won at Camp Randall 37-20; Basketball defeated Wisconsin at Assembly Hall 69-63 but later lost second to last game of regular season at Kohl Center 60-59).
-Last school year Illinois swept Wisconsin in basketball and football: 1989-90 (Football won at home 32-9; Basketball defeated Wisconsin at Assembly Hall in the conference opener 73-59 before winning at Wisconsin Field House a few weeks later 66-63).

Virtually every road win will be a Q1 win thanks to NET.
That's enough, Reggie Miller.

And they now get a bit of a respite, as they don't play again until Saturday afternoon at home vs. Northwestern.
