  • But Michigan is a 1 seed and Illinois a 2 lol stop it . It’s Illinois Ohio state and Iowa badgers better than Michigan

  • Imagine if they didn’t lose against Rutgers and Maryland at home 😂😂😂 no one to blame but themselves for losing the title

  • Good game, Illinois. Illini looks like national title contenders. However, Michigan just won the Big Ten Title outright AND has the number one ranked recruiting class in the entire country coming in next season. 3 five stars and 3 four stars. Not surprised. Who WOULDN'T want to be coached by Juwan Howard?

  • The Fighting Illini mens basketball ream looked very good against Michigan. The Illini guards did an outstanding job of attacking and playing team help defense. Fraser was spectacular and look hungry. Good all around win for the Illini. Stay hungry and remember the loss to Michigan State and Maryland because you just may play both of them again in the big ten tournament.

  • Best defensive effort I've seen all year. Lots of people have complained about Curbelo turnovers, but how do we feel now? I've said it before and I'll say it again, dude is a future All-American. Yes he makes some mistakes, but he's a freshman. A freshman. Let that sink in. The future is in good hands, my friends. Also, how good of a defender is Trent?! He's such a pest and I love it!

    • WDYM, after Michigan lost they played two more games, got COVID then went on to win 5 more straight games. So after they lost they went on a 7 game winning streak while beating OSU and Wisconsin, and destroying Iowa which means they went to hiding. Shut up you hater

  • I’ve seen a lot of Michigan fans say “ it was just a bad day for Michigan”, but Michigan has only had 1 bad day in 19 games prior to this and I don’t think a bad day for the #2 team in the country is losing to #4 by 23 at home and Illinois didn’t even have donsunmu. So take your lose and get humbled

    • @Infinity Yes we played very bad game and just couldn’t hit shots

      Laker NationLaker NationVor Monat
    • Your right, but what I’m saying is a bad game for a top 3 team isn’t as bad as losing by 23 at home by a team that dosent have there start player, how do you not understand that. Why u so salty. Just take your loss bud and go back to your 8th grade algebra hw

      InfinityInfinityVor Monat
    • @Infinity Tf up with you man, they have shown all year that they are a top 3 team and they had a bad game. Baylor has had a bad game. Illinois has had a few, OSU had had a few. Every team in the nation except the zags have had at least one bad game.

      Laker NationLaker NationVor Monat
    • Tf is up with you man, idk what your talking about at this point. A top 3 team dosent just lose by 23 at home when the other team dosent have potentially the best player in college basketball. I’m saying they didn’t have a bad day they got outplayed and over all just dominated by Illinois

    • @Yang Xiao - Hey Yang! How bout that Big -10 conference? Still think they were the best? In all my many years of watching college basketball I HAVE NEVER SEEN the collapse of a conference like I did the Big-10 this year... What they didn’t accomplish was historic...

      Terry LopezTerry LopezVor 18 Tage
    • @Yang Xiao - So is the “mighty” Big 10 going to have even 1 team make the Sweet Sixteen? BTW, the Pac-12 is undefeated so far, and had the fewest bids of any of the “power” conferences...

      Terry LopezTerry LopezVor 18 Tage
    • @Yang Xiao - Ever since there have been 64 teams in the Tournament (1985-before you were born...), only NINE #15 seeds have defeated a #2 seed. That is not just an upset, that is a MAJOR shocker! You tell me even one person that choose Oral Roberts to win that game. NOBODY! Everyone’s bracket was blown apart because of Ohio State’s LOSS. I’ve never even heard of North Texas and yet another “mighty” Big 10 school fell... TBH, even though I’m a UCLA alumni and fan of the team, I didn’t have them beating Michigan State. To be frank, I didn’t think UCLA had any business even going into the tournament. I really believe that the NCAAB committee pitted Michigan State against UCLA as a “gift” game and nod to the Big 10. And yet, the Spartans couldn’t get it done... Everyone knows that the Big 10 had the most teams going to the Tournament this year, but there are NOW 3 LESS Big 10 teams in it... And the Tournament is only 2 days old! Don’t try pulling that “upsets” happen excuse... The Big 10 LOST to three teams they had no business losing to... BTW, why is the conference called the Big 10, when there are actually 14 schools in it? At least when the PAC-10 brought in Colorado and Utah, they changed the conference name to PAC-12... Also, you saying that “many Big 10 schools are playing well in the Tournament”. Really? Is Illinois beating Drexel some great achievement? Even Wisconsin beating North Carolina was not a “great win”. North Carolina is not a great team... But I will say that Rutgers did a great job 👍

      Terry LopezTerry LopezVor 21 Tag
    • @Terry Lopez Big ten has the most teams going to tournament. That is why they are the best conference this year. Upsets are common in the tournament. Even Zags get upset by texas tech in 2019. Does that mean Texas tech is stronger than Zags? There are also so many big ten teams playing well. Why you ignore them? Reality wins? Reality wins actually happened on Zags before. lol

      Yang XiaoYang XiaoVor 21 Tag
    • @Yang Xiao - Looks like the Big 10 is having a great first 2 days of the tournament. My boys at UCLA sent Michigan State packing and that “powerhouse” Oral Roberts sent Ohio State packing... And Purdue sent home by the perennial powerhouse North Texas... HAHAHAHA! 🤣🤣🤣 Once again hype and reality collided and reality wins...

    John SmithJohn SmithVor Monat
    • @Laker Nation Top 25? Illinois played at second ranked Baylor and at Missouri who was ranked in the Top 10 this year. They lost at MSU who played football on the court by breaking Ayo's nose and hitting Kofi in the head wile having two hands body checking him the whole game. Even a Michigan reporter said the team played too physical. Look at how they made the OSU coach walk out late in the game because of the way they played them two days later, which was only about 20% as physical as they played Illinois.

      Nice OneNice OneVor Monat
    • Easy schedule😂😂😂 wdym we have played the same amount of top 25 games as Illinois and have more wins in the top 25, we have the best winning percentage in the top 25 in the big ten and the only team in the big ten who has more top 25 wins then us is Iowa who has 7 compared to our 6 but we only have 2 losses compared to their 4 in the top 25

    • @mr. mack I just wonder how the NCAA is going to call the tourney games. Kofi could be a big ex-factor if the NCAA don't allow teams to push and grab him because of his size. The Illini lost the 2005 National Title because the refs kept calling stupid fouls on their big man James Augustine for looking at Sean May.
