Illini Basketball / Re: RANKED!
« Last post by MichaelD on Today at 02:13:00 PM »
We beat Wisky on their floor yet they are a 6 seed and we are a 9 seed.  Of course, this doesn't mean much at this stage.

What impresses me so far is that we've won some road games, and at places we usually get trounced.

Michigan just lost at home tonight to PSU.

They are backed into a corner, in spite of claims they remain cool by their coach J Howard

Jones should get clock - I hope BU allows him to settle into the game and doesn’t simply yank him over his 1st mistake - we need Tevian  :ILLINI: :ILLINI: :ILLINI: :ILLINI: :ILLINI:

What in the name of Christian Laettner was he thinking? Griffin has been playing with an edge but he obviously needs to tune it way down. He picked up a T against Mizzou towards the end of the game when he wouldn't stop jawing at Smith. Time for Tev get back into the good graces of BU.

I dont even think it's anger in this case.  We were up 5 when this happened.  I've seen him throw elbows after the play when he thinks officials aren't looking, and has gotten away with a few.  He just has a mentality that needs to be changed.  BU teaches toughness, but he has a skewed (playground) idea of what that means.  BU had no trouble telling him to get off the court, though he said he didn't see the play clearly and Griffin told him he lost his balance.  BU had seen enough film to know that probably wasnt the case.  I dont think he should play against Michigan even if there are no NCAA handdowns.  He needs to realize where that line is, and imo, he has been stepping over it all season.

If Im not mistaken, Michigan is without Livers.  But they have a very good pg, which we have had trouble guarding this year.  It will be a good test to see how much our defense has improved.  Last nite, Trent was on the shooting guard and Ayo on the pg.  Generally, this works better for us.
