Illinois Post game thread


Recommended Posts

From the 48-46 moment one team stepped up and made shots....the other didn't and that was us. Don't like losing to the Illini and this one will sting but they just stepped up and made shots, played better. Almost easier to get over a game like that.

Onto Northwestern which is a must win considering who we have after. Still a tourney team but things can go to the bubble if we don't get 2 of these next 3.

Just awful.  The talent gap is unreal.

Was the talent gap that wide when we were up 46-42 well into the second half.  Here comes all the negative posters after a loss to the best team in tbe league. We had won 4 out of 5 coming into this game and had played well.

Exactly right.  One team was mentally tougher and it was not us. Worked two good plays to get Stewart a three and he missed both and it was downhill from there.

No and that's why we are pissed.  Not too difficult to comprehend

Illinois played like they wanted that game more in the second half. Way too many missed shots...I think IU shot 35% from the floor today...not going to beat really good teams with that offensive performance. They just looked out of sync in second half.

Onto Northwestern...

Trent Frazier is the player IU desperately needs. Unfortunately, it’s takes time and development to get a player like that. It’s unfortunate Phinsee has his injury issues that he does because he could have been that person.

Illinois is the far better team. 
 

TJD consistently gets out performed against bigger players. 
 

Don’t look now, but the schedule doesn’t get much easier. NW is about as close to a must win as you can get. We could lose multiple games here.

Illinois was the better and more talented team.

Sorry, don't mean to sound so negative. Really liked our team coming into today and I think we will play better going forward.

Mostly disappointed on the offensive execution and lack of effort on perimeter defense. Guys like Geronimo and Galloway who normally bring elite energy & effort seemed a little lethargic today. We need a wing who can score and open up things for the others. Out of Kopp, Bates, Geronimo & Galloway…someone needs to step up and be that guy if we’re gonna be successful going forward. We incredibly mediocre at that position
