Sparty post game thread!!

* Hung around in the 1st half but Sparty went on a short run in the 2nd to put the game away early.
* Giorgi B seems to have regressed this year. The only positive I can see in him is that he seems to be the only one who knows how to feed Kofi in the post.

Speaking of regressing - Trent is the poster child. Seems if doesn't have the ball controlling the flow he is lost in the Underwood offense.

Speaking of that I remember when Underwood was hired he talked of getting a shot up in the first 8 seconds of a possession; seems that has been replaced by a weave. I often think I am watching a dribbling drill by the Globetrotters but the Washington Generals are not the opponent. Sparty simply sagged in on Giorgi and Kofi and watched the Illini hit 1 of their first 16 3's. For the game just 3 of 28 after Trent was able to make a couple of non pressure 3's late. Crap if they had the 3 when I played college intramural s we would beat those numbers easily.

I want to be excited by the Illini but instead I often feel doom and gloom when I know they are going to play and sensing that I will be disappointed again.

Something isn't right with this team - the talent is greater than results IMO.   :nonono: :MrFurious:
