Harvard even called back-to-back timeouts trying to inbound the ball. That should result in a turnover or something.


BRUTAL
It builds intensity to say the least. If you are with anybody who knows a damn thing about basketball, you're strategizing during those commercials, timeouts, and other breaks.

I know what they're doing between commercials... It just kills the flow of the entire game, and turns it into a snoozefest. There should be a limit to how many timeouts you can call under 2 minutes or something. As someone watching with no interest, it didn't build any intensity for me... Just made me irritated if anything.

I got one of those for $25 at Marshalls. It is sick and all stitched. First game I will be wearing it. Hope it's not a jynx to the orange and blue.

Or you flip to another game if you're worried about it being a snoozefest. That's the beauty of the "2nd round."

There was no other game to flip to... all the others were blowouts, and didn't take 45 minutes to play the last 2 minutes.

The front looks nice, but the back is hideous.

You're not getting it at all. It's okay if you want to be dense, whatever.

If they cared about their traditions, they would keep them. They'd rather make Adidas happy. Their prerogative.

We'll know early if this is a bad or great game from the Illini.

Miami took care of business and will play the winner of this Colorado Illinois game.

If Illinois avoids one of their patented 6-8 minute scoring droughts then they'll win this game.

Bubble Bruce Weber goes down!

That was a solid first half effort from the Illini.

Fun game. Have some people over. This game is eerily similar to the UNLV game of a few years ago.
