7 Wins in a row for the Illini.

I guess Williams hasn't scored a bucket this year, but played locked down Defense in the last few minutes of the game.

Very nice winning streak and also important when you look at their next 5 games.

Iowa doesn't ever foul. Good to know.

Garza is getting gifts by the refs all game.

Illinois is a bunch of whiny 'lil biatches!! Last 4 seconds of the game and right after only proved my point. Freaking babies!! :roll:
So you're okay with Garza tugging his jersey out and pointing at the Illinois bench after his late 3 saying this is my F**Ing house?

Or are you okay with Weiskamp dunking at the very end of the game when it was basically decided?

They tried playing defense, but Iowa got away with hack-a-shaq in the first 30 min.

True. But there's also a fine line between beating your opponent and showing them up.

This game could have been another Kansas/Kansas State ending, this time started by the home team. I have never liked Coach McCaffery, he spews more f*** bombs than any coach alive. The dunk didn’t need to happen, but I am glad to see Underwood has finally got players with an edge. Been a long time coming. Imagine that revenge game has gotten larger.

Chin Coleman, a real richard of a human being, acted like a richard. I wish he would have been that not-ok with losing when he was employed at Bradley.

If you don’t like it, stop it. Sack up, Illinois.

JMM, so you're okay with showing up the opposing team when you've already basically sealed the game?

Eh. Both sides pretty much acted like tools at the end of the game. No big deal, IMO.

It's big time sports. It's competition. So what if the dude does a 360, between the legs, windmill dunk at the end of the game? Just beat them next time.

I’m ok with anyone showing up Chin Coleman, yes. And also what tribe said.

You want sportsmanship, go watch biddy basketball.

I don't find it acceptable Alan Griffin stomping on the Purdue player.

Nor did I. His suspension was absolutely deserved.

Watching the Illini and Maryland game. Illini get off to hot start as Frank Williams hits back to back threes. Then, as most coaches do he gets take out of the due to rotation. They had a 15 point lead now down to 3. Just don’t know why more coaches are inclined to not stay with the hot hand.

Zebras have been garbage. But Illinois bigs are also just terrible with the ball.

Biggest issues in last night's loss were missed free throws (14-24 for the Illini) and Maryland's defense shutting them down for effectively the first 8 minutes of the 2nd half.

If you’re going to take your time out on the floor then at least make sure you get your sweat wiped up.

Big win tonight on the road. That was a tough 5 game stretch but the last 5 should have numerous Illinois wins.
