    So Illinois beat out Michigan State, Duke, Kentucky and Ohio State for this kid. New era in Champaign with Whitman as AD.

    Great get, Underwood is going to be the real deal. Need a JUCO or 5th year big and get this thing rolling.

    Mark Smith donned an Illinois hat on Wednesday night.
    And with that, Michigan State's recruiting efforts for open spots on next year's roster will move forward.
    The 2017 Illinois Mr. Basketball award winner, Smith picked his in-state school during an early evening press conference at Edwardsville (Ill.) High School. He'll be the first Mr. Basketball to play for the Illini since 2010.
    Smith's final list of suitors included MSU, Kentucky, Duke and Ohio State.
    A 6-foot-5 point guard, Smith told reporters at the press conference that he picked Illinois for the chance to help revitalize the program and because it was a program that "stood out among the rest" in his recruitment.

    This is one big point guard. Might be better off shedding a few pounds. But then again, I want to see a team of high flying Guards/Forwards that can post up and run like the 89 team.

    I'm sure everyone saw this coming, but Jeremiah Tilmon and Javon Pickett signed with the University of Missouri.

    3-0. Refs were terrible. Both Illinois and DePaul players deserved better. Win or lose, it's fun watching IL basketball again.

    I could have sworn I heard that EIU beat the Illini.

    Haven't been this excited for Illini basketball since 2005.

    Results of scrimmages don't mean a whole lot.

    Illini could conceivably start 14-0 if they win at NW on December 1st.

    Groce would have lost a couple of these already. Underwood and his staff can really coach. I have no illusions they will top MSU, but just look at the turnaround of AJ. It's like getting a new player. Antigua has helped Black and Finke. Finke is finishing at the rim now. They are young with the Freshman and will come up with a few headscratchers, but this season will not be as gloomy as predicted.

    Nice comeback last night. Rough loss but team showed some heart.

    Also loved the throwback unis. Wear these more.

    Underwood hasn't looked discouraging but his teams need some talent. Groce & Weber dried up the talent pipelines that Self & Kruger made.

    I've been a bit worried with him drawing up inbound plays on multiple occasions, it's even lost us two games, but I like him. He just needs a year or two to fill the roster out the way he wants it.
