Take that stupid Buckeyes!
Back to #9 on kenpom. #5th on offense.
12th in NCAA Net Rankings. Probably end up as the top #4 seed or lowest #3seed, depending on the results of the BT Tourney

Nebraska will be a tough game. They are smack dab on the edge of the bubble. They need this win badly.

Had to rock a baby to sleep when it was 72-62. Came back and Illinois was losing in OT. Knew it would be a tough game. WTF happened late?

The talent is Final Four good.

But Rick Barnes is the HC, so......
Dude has 1 Final 4 appearance since he began coaching in 1987. Had a good run with Texas in the mid 2000’s but hasn’t been successful since then sans the S16 run last year.

Defense didn’t show up. Then some really awful decision making at the end of the game. Par for the course with Underwood coached teams. They had a week off and somehow gave up 2 consecutive and 1’s late then followed it up with 2 moronic turnovers in the last 3 minutes of the game. Brilliant
