Illinois Postgame Thread

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to see a better performance tonight, but still....got the W

My hope is that this team plays to their opponent, meaning when the spotlight comes on, we will hang tough with whomever.

A W to move to 3-0! 

With that said, we really need Rob back soon. Green single handlely kept Illinois in this game

Think I heard the commentators say Rob won't be available for this week-ends game.......

I hope Tom Crean watched and took notes of the Hoosiers breaking down a 2/3 zone tonight. That could be beneficial for the Dawgs later this season.

As long as DG is leading this team we’re going to struggle. Is there anyone that can feel comfortable with his ability to make smart decisions on a regular basis?

I am not a Devonte Green fan. He does have flashes at times, but just goes brain dead to many other times! Like dribbling against the press until you get a ten second call against you. Are drive down the lane then do a 360 spin move shot three feet from the basket. That doesn’t hit anything! The slow start at the beginning was mostly because he just dribbled the ball no movement! He’s a junior with plenty of experience, so he should be much better and more consistent!

A lot of negativity I see, but has anyone stopped to give Illinois some credit?  I was impressed with the Illini.  Gutsy performance by them.

Especially from the big freshmen kid. Giving Juwan all he could handle

I’m actually wondering about the shortened bench. We were playing 10 but CAM has shortened it. 

If course everyone is glossing over that Rob didn’t play and he’s a major part of the team, but think the bench is a bit under utilized right now 

I'm with you. Davis could have played a few more minutes. When he is in there, you need to get him the ball. Would have liked to see Moore for a few minutes. Don't tell me he is not as good as the IL backup bigs.

Justin Smith is my unsung hero of the game (UHOTG). Led the team in +/-. Played great D. A very efficient 4 of 5 from the field. 6 offensive rebounds, 3 blocks and a steal. Played within himself.  Green- that's how it's done.

Agree.  He's been gradually settling in over the past few games.

Yeah, Justin seems to have found his stride.  Now Green, that's another story.

Glad that your award is not “coveted”

He is great when he stays within his game.

Great move by Archie to move Langford on the ball and Green off the ball. I actually thought he did it late in the 1st. Green was good defensively tonight, but nearly took IU from a double-digit win to an L. He was so bad late and really struggled all night offensively. This team really need Phinisee.

A win is a win... Nice that we’re not dropping the gimmes like we did last year.  Romeo won the game when he took over at the beginning of the second half, but this team isn’t good enough to win comfortably against anyone when we’re sitting players like Rob because of a bump on the head.  If we have another slow start like we have for the past 10 or 11 games, Michigan is gonna blow us out.

Agreed! They came out totally loose and swinging for the fences. Once they got a lead they were confident and kept us on our heels the whole first half☠️

I'm starting to think this is the case.
