Up to this point Illinois has looked good against decent competition and looked solid for 32 minutes at Oregon. They had Oregon down 10, then slowed down the offense and Oregon's defense stepped up as well.

Jaylon needs to start over Tracy Abrams. Tracy had 3 costly turnovers late in that game against Oregon. I like Jaylon's upside, his defense is pretty good and he penetrates well and can find open guys. his shot needs work, but it's not like Tracy is lighting it up.
This team could surprise Mizzou. I know Mizzou beat UCLA at home, but they haven't been on the road for a good test yet or a neutral court.

Illinois had GATech on the road and Oregon in Portland. I hope we can beat these guys, I am sick of hearing their :bullshit:

Illini fans are you out there?

Abrams is not a good PG. Tate can penetrate and create shots.

No matter the records or talent, it's always a close one. I think Illinois takes this one this year, and they have to if they want a prayer at making the tournament this year

It's sad. Best basketball state in the country and they can't even GET to the tourney. Both of these teams used to be pretty solid and now it's a shit show.

Yep I remember the early 2000s when it was actually a good game. Illinois is pulling in a hell of a class this next year so we'll see if they can improve

We'll see if Groce can lock it down and keep his job. Not a fan of him at all

Are you an Illini fan? I grew up close to the Paign and moved to Florida asap.

Yessir. Grew up about an hours shot outside of ChamBana and went to a ton of basketball and football games as a kid but was always raised a Florida State fan. I hate Groce, but if he can keep this class that he has right now and add maybe one more piece, I think he could have a pretty solid team. If he loses any of the top 3 he has committed, I think he's out the door if they don't make the tourney this year.

This used to be the early season litmus test for Mizzou. Lots of good games in the rivalry.

Now I'm just counting down the days until Kim Anderson gets fired. The over/under bet with my friend is 2 weeks. Sad fate for a former players but you can't have the schools 3 worst seasons in history and still coach.

He's recruited some pretty dam good players and 1 got kicked off the team. He's had some problems off the court and on the court.

I remember going to a few of these games when they are big time matchups. It's so bad now it's on ESPNU

Yeah those guys he got from Simeon never panned out, Malcolm Hill has been solid but it's his senior year now. This next class will make or break him. That kid he got from ESL is a stud, hopefully nobody else nabs him before signing day

No excuses for it either considering the basketball talent that comes out of Chicago, STL and KC.

Illinois with an early 8 point lead at the under 12 T.O. Looking sloppy handling the ball, Mizzou could change this game if they keep creating turnovers
