An Illinois Pregame Thread


Recommended Posts

When: Wednesday, 2/14, 8:30pm ET on BTN

KenPom: Likes IU to win 75-68, with a 74% chance of victory

ESPN: Gives IU a 75% chance of victory

Vegas: IU -7.5

 

The status of Michael Finke is still up in the air after he suffered a concussion over the weekend. He is their tallest player at 6'10" and averages 10 points and 5 rebounds. Greg Eboigboden started in his place against Penn State. In our first matchup, we gave up 19 points each to Trent Frazier and Leron Black. Containing them will be key this time around.

 

Four Factors

Looking strictly at only conference games:

IU

Illinois

Aside from forcing turnovers, their defense has been in the bottom of the B1G. They are also worst in the B1G in turning the ball over.

It will be disappointing if we don't win this one handily.

Yes, they were brutal defensively when we played them at their place. Unfortunately, we were more brutal from the FT line. I don’t expect Frazier to have his way in Assembly Hall. Hoosiers by 14.

That first link is funny. I bet Archie has no 'beat certain teams for X-amount of money' clauses in his contract. That just screams inferiority complex.

Thanks for posting these.
