I have to admit that I'm surprised.  He's managed to get the players to play how he wants them to play, I think.  Never thought that would happen this quickly.

On a few boards I visit quite a few UC fans were ecstatic Mick left for UCLA.  And just as ecstatic that they hired Brannen.

Yeah, like Huggins, Mick produced strong defensive teams, but he never seemed to recruit any shooters/scorers.  He certainly never found the kind of offensive talent that Huggins did.  And Mick has that abrasive personality/coaching style.  I think it got old and, let's face it, he's not Huggins.  I don't believe he will succeed at UCLA with his style.  It's ugly basketball.  Maybe the UCLA name will help his recruiting, but I just don't see any final four waiting for him there.  But we'll see.  Just one old guy's opinion.

I thought the Illini were up 15 early....now down 5 to Maryland. Is Turgeon some magician? Still hate that we gave one away to that crew.

25 point in game swing. Illini lose at home to MD and have Sparty come calling with at Rutgers and at Penn St. They might be coming back to Earth soon. Still ticks me off the difference of a team who is now in driver seat for Big 10 (Maryland) and we gave them one in 90 seconds.

Turgeon's man to man defense was getting chewed up...the Terps switched to a zone.  Threw Illinois off kilter.

Dont like UNC or Duke but saw an amazing stat. In their last 100 meetings the series is tied 50-50  and in the 100 games each team has scored 7767 points. I cant even imagine what the odds of that occurring would be.

Yep. Turgeon even said they rarely use it...but just have it in practice. They were down 14-15 at the time. Changing to zone and using press messed up Illinois rhythm. 2nd game this year Illinois had Maryland down huge and blew it.

Shows how thin the top of the conference is. Maryland has 3 wins (2 Illinois, 1 vs us) they had no business winning but did.

They had a mathematician run the odds.  .0135% chance

3 minutes in and MSU leads UM 1-0???

6 minutes in and 3-3 at the timeout. Lot of bricks, turnovers and some good D.

Anyone watch the ending of UNC/Duke? I know Carolina missed a ton of free throws but our good old buddy Teddy was front and center on the no call that favored Duke.

Yep.  Acc has to protect their potential number 1 seed.  Even biased bilas was scolding them.

Yes, I watched it. For years, when the game is close at the end, and the player is in the bonus, my son always asks me why they don't deliberately miss the second free throw after hitting the first.  Well Tre Jones did it twice against UNC.  Duke got the ball back on both misses, and tied, and then won the game in OT.

After the game, Tre was asked about that. He said he and his coach actually practice missing the free throw. His coach told him to stand two feet to the left of center.  Imagine that.  They actually practice missing the free throw, and hitting it off the rim hard enough to recover the miss. Which is what they did twice on Saturday.

As the announcer for the Wisconsin/OSU game said today :  "The B1G eating it's own this year".

I just noticed that the Henenway kid from Castle had 16 points last night and was 4-7 from 3 against ND.  Why didn’t Archie use one of the open scholarships on him?  Was he too good of a shooter?
