I can't believe there hasn't been a thread about college basketball, let alone about the Fighting Illini and the unbelievable season they're having.  Here's the latest scoop on the Fighting Illini's undefeated season...

Illinois Beats Indiana, Improves to 23-0

Sun Feb 6, 3:38 PM ET
By JIM PAUL, Associated Press Writer



CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Top-ranked Illinois had its lowest-scoring game of the season, but the Illini remained unbeaten with a 60-47 victory over Indiana on Sunday. James Augustine scored 16 points and Deron Williams' playmaking led to 24 more for Illinois (23-0, 9-0 Big Ten), which should remain the unanimous No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll for a second straight week.

Illinois and No. 5 Boston College (20-0) are the only unbeatens remaining in Division I.

Williams was 0-for-7 from the field and scored only one point, a free throw with 2:15 to go in the game. But he assisted on the Illini's first seven baskets of the game, had eight in the first half and finished with 11 in the game.

Luther Head scored 13 points for Illinois, Dee Brown added 12 and Roger Powell Jr. had 10.

Robert Vaden and D.J. White each scored 12 points for Indiana (10-10, 5-4), which played without leading scorer Bracey Wright, who missed the game because of an injured left ankle.

The Hoosiers shot 38 percent from the field in their second-lowest output of the season.

Illinois' previous low was a 67-45 win over Cincinnati on Dec. 31. Indiana scored a season-low 45 against Notre Dame on Dec. 8.

The Illini jumped to a 20-3 lead on Williams' playmaking. After two free throws from Augustine opened the scoring, Williams punched a loose ball to a streaking Augustine for a dunk.

Then as the Hoosiers brought the ball up court, Brown poked it away from Marshall Strickland and found Williams, who passed to Head for another dunk that made it 6-0 just 3:02 into the game.

Indiana missed eight of its first nine shots before White's three-point play triggered an 8-2 run that brought the Hoosiers within 22-11. They went on to outscore the Illini 17-6 over the last 8 minutes of the half and trailed 26-20 at halftime.

But Illinois went on a 13-2 run to begin the second half. Brown had two 3-pointers and Head added one from long range during the run that put the Illini up 39-22 with 15:33 to go. Indiana never closed within double figures again.

Sadly the Fighting Illini lost yesterday to Ohio State in a very close game.

Illinois' Bid for a Perfect Season Ends
By The Associated Press

Illinois no longer has the pressure of trying to complete college basketball's first perfect season since 1976.

The top-ranked Illini lost for the first time this season Sunday, falling to Ohio State 65-64. They are still the top seed for this week's Big Ten tournament and will almost certainly still be a No. 1 seed for the NCAA (news - web sites) tournament.

They just won't have that perfect season to worry about.

"Everyone says a loss will help. We'll find out," Illinois coach Bruce Weber said. "We'll learn from it and move on. This next stretch is the most important of the year, and that's what people are going to remember."

Illinois' loss was just one part of a wild Sunday for the teams at the top of the poll.

Second-ranked North Carolina needed a game-closing 11-0 run to beat No. 6 Duke 75-73. Florida beat No. 3 Kentucky 53-52, a loss that could cost the Wildcats a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. Chris Paul hit a 12-foot runner at the buzzer to give No. 4 Wake Forest a 55-53 victory over North Carolina State.

That left the top four with a 2-2 mark in four games decided by a total of six points.

In other games involving ranked teams Sunday, it was: Missouri 72, No. 7 Kansas 68 and No. 12 Gonzaga 90, San Diego 74.

Ohio State's Matt Sylvester hit a 3-pointer with 5.1 seconds left to cap a career-high 25-point effort that kept the Illini (29-1, 15-1) from the Big Ten's first unbeaten season since 1976, when Indiana went on to become the last perfect NCAA champion.

Illinois had a 12-point lead in the second half and didn't score over the final 3 minutes.

"We didn't take care of the ball and they made all the plays at the end," Illinois center Jack Ingram said. "They won it."

Ohio State (19-11, 8-8) was banned by its own administrators from the postseason two months ago to mitigate possible NCAA violations committed under former coach Jim O'Brien.

Thad Matta was chosen as O'Brien's replacement and he ruined a team's run at a perfect season for the second straight year.

Last March, Xavier handed top-ranked Saint Joseph's its first loss of the season in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 tournament.

"I'd like to be the other team just one time," Matta said with a laugh. "I'm living for the day I'm the No. 1 team and someone else is trying to do it to us."

The last team to reach the NCAA tournament without a loss was UNLV in 1991.

"They just outplayed us," said Dee Brown, who led Illinois with 13 points. "They deserved it."

No. 2 North Carolina 75, No. 6 Duke 73

Freshman Marvin Williams converted a three-point play with 17 seconds left to cap the game-closing 11-0 run for the Tar Heels (26-3, 14-2), who won their first Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championship since 1993

Sean May had 26 points and 24 rebounds to record his eighth straight double-double for North Carolina, which got its third win over Duke in the last 16 meetings.

Shelden Williams had 25 points and six blocks for Duke (22-5, 11-5), while J.J. Redick scored all 17 of his points in the first half.

Florida 53, No. 3 Kentucky 52

Anthony Roberson scored 21 points, including two free throws with 15 seconds remaining, and the Gators (20-7, 12-4 Southeastern Conference) ended an eight-game losing streak to Kentucky.

The Wildcats (23-4, 14-2) still had a chance to win the road game, but Kelenna Azubuike's 3-pointer just before the buzzer bounced off the left side of the rim. Chuck Hayes had 20 points for Kentucky, the top seed in the SEC tournament.

No. 4 Wake Forest 55, N.C. State 53

Paul finished with nine points and six assists for the Demon Deacons (26-4, 13-3 ACC), who have won 10 of 11 games. Justin Gray added 15 points, including the tying 3-pointer to set up Paul's final shot.

Paul also hit Wolfpack star Julius Hodge below the belt in the first half, a shot that led to speculation on whether Paul will be available for the Demon Deacons' next game.

Ilian Evtimov scored 19 points to lead the Wolfpack (17-12, 7-9), who had several chances to win and improve their uncertain NCAA prospects.

Missouri 72, No. 7 Kansas 68

Thomas Gardner matched his career best with 23 points and Linas Kleiza had 15 points and 14 rebounds for the Tigers (15-15, 7-9), who snapped a four-game losing streak to Kansas.

Wayne Simien had 17 points and eight rebounds for the visiting Jayhawks (22-5, 12-4), who were bumped to the second seed in this week's Big 12 tournament behind co-champion Oklahoma. Kansas' Keith Langford had five points in 3 minutes before re-injuring an ankle he hurt in practice last week. Langford is the Jayhawks' second-leading scorer at 15.1 points.

No. 12 Gonzaga 90, San Diego 74

Adam Morrison had 25 points and a career-high eight assists to lead the Bulldogs (24-4) to the West Coast Conference championship game as they go for their sixth tournament title in seven years.

Floyd North III had 16 points, and Nick Lewis added 15 points and eight rebounds for the Toreros (16-13).

March Madness is soon upon us, and I'm curious to see who here is into it.  I used to be heavily into March Madness when I was in college ten years ago, and ever since then I haven't paid much attention during the basketball season until March was upon us.

I'm thinking maybe we could start some sort of bracket tourney here, either for fun or for a prize.  What are everyone's thoughts?  We would have to have a decent amount of people playing in order to make it happen though.

I'm sad to see Illinois get beat, Ohio State got lucky and it goes to show you the sun shines on anyone on any given day. I like March Madness only because I don't have to wait for all the schools to scroll thru. It takes too long to get to the NBA on the bottom line at ESPN!
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

Wow!   :o  Talk about a great game to watch on TV!  The Wildcats were up by 15 points, but the Illini came back to bring the game into overtime, and then won the game by just one point!  Way to go Illini!!!   :)

Two great games were on TV today, and a big congratulations goes out to be North Carolina and Michigan State.  I cannot believe there were three overtime games this weekend, and the Michigan State / Kentucy game went into double-overtime.  Unreal!   :o

I was attending school in Champaign from 1991-1996 during the suspension (thanks Bruce Pearl) years, where Richard Keane was our prized recruit.

I still remember being uspet when the Illini could not box out against Michigan in 1989.  I got into the Illini because, although I was too young to grasp it, Kendal Gill had attended the high school I was to attend - Rich Central High School. 

After seeing Illinois progress from Deion Thomas and T.J. Wheeler teams with a terrible Andy Kaufman comeback (although I was at a game when Kaufman beat Iowa on a buzzer beater) to Richard Keane to Corey Bradford to Gerry Gee to Sergio McClain, Frank Williams, and Birian Cook until now. 

This is sweet.

My wife and I are alumni and we thought we might have heart attacks during the Arizona game.  Man, we miss La Bamba and C.O.'s.

I won 50 bucks in one of my NCAA pools thanks to NC State coming through.
So not everyone was sad to see Illini lose.  >:D

Just to be safe, I did pick Illini to win it all in one of my other pools.  8)

Well I didn't want to run my mouth for fear of jinxing my team but I will say the Badgers have impressed me more this season than ever before and I actually have real hopes they will go far.  Just hitting the #1 ranking this season has me delighted, I don't watch the NBA much so the Badgers give me my basketball needs,

anyone catch the Baylor vs Texas A&M highlights on ESPN today?  I have not yet, but listened to part of the game on the radio last, 5 OT periods before Baylor ended up finishing of the Aggies.  This Baylor team is a new force in the Big 12 and making waves.  Granted A&M isn't as good as they were last year with AC on the team, but they were still rankied 16 in the AP poll

This ought to be a fun weekend.  First time ever all 4 number 1 seeds made it to the final 4.  I think I'll make my homemade buffalo wings and plop down in front of the old plasma Saturday night instead of going out to watch the games.  My wife will complain, but she can't fool me.  She always acts like she doesn't like bball, but when we watch a game she always gets into it.   :stop: :thumbup:

Glad my woogla boogla worked on them free throws at the end, ;)

Also glad Chalmers made the last second 3 to tie it up.

I couldn't believe the Tigers only made one FG in OT, it was a 12-5 run in KU's favor.

Yeah, that was one of the better championship games I've seen in a while.  Huge shot by Chalmers.  I was glad KU won.  I guess I'm sort of a bball purist and Memphis' team for the last few years has been a lot of athleticism with not so much skill (although they were obviously better this year).  I'm not a fan of the And 1 effect.   :P

I am not a BBall purist either, it is very very seldom I watch any basketball on tv, I only watch the bracket play and NBA playoffs, if I can. I only watched one and a half games this year.  ;)

I see that Agustin and Abrahms from UT have decided to try the NBA draft, if they do, no championship run for the Longhorns next season......we are beginning to see this all to often, players leaving early to make the BIG bucks in pro ball. 


I'm all out of bubble gum.....
