Unlike football, it does seem like things can turn around rather fast in the college basketball world. We'll see if Willard has what it takes.

He'll get credit for bringing in Young. Everyone else he's added to the roster have been rather meh.

We went Saturday.  

I thought the effort was terrific.  Illinois is just better.  There is some NBA talent on the roster, although one may be more likely to end up in jail.

My takeaway is B10 refs are awful.  The game was ruined by poor officiating against both sides,  Awful officiating is the norm in the B10.

 

Kudo's to Donte Scott for playing so well on a bad knee.

4/18 from 3. Outside shooting continues to kill this team

Have to tip the cap to Scott for righting his ship this season after a disastrous start.

Id be curious to know how much luck plays a role in 3pt shooting. Like over a long enough sample size. Its still only 20 or 25 games. So its not a huge sample size but I wonder if bad luck is the difference in this team being a tourny team and where they are. Granted, still prob only a 10 or 11 seed even if they have been unlucky. Or you know some of you guys who have watched much more than me can chime and and say there hasnt been much bad luck. They all legit stink at shooting.

They all stink at shooting except Young and Scott, who are both merely ok.

Young and Scott are average. Long can hit an occasional 3. Everyone else is beyond horrendous. That's where Kaiser and DHS being potatoes really hurt, though I don't think DHS was billed as a pure shooter.

Yup. If they just shoot like a normal team this season could look a lot different.

If they had won 3 of those games, they would probably be in a good position right now.
