    Default Congrats to Illinois

    They came back and played a good game. Brandon Paul is sensational. Without him, they would have been smoked. But great players rise to the occasion.

    Default Turnovers, Turnovers, Turnovers --- self destruction

    Not taking anything away from Brandon Paul or the Illini team but where is our outside shot???

    3-point defense is non-existent tonite.

    Bardo said it all --- 'use your BIGS'

    Disappointing loss --- No Plan B imo.

    Their greats are better than ours. The Zags had their first real challenge tonight and failed. Congrats to the clearly better team.

    That's what it comes down to and college ball is all about guards

    What else can you say. Brandon Paul was the best player on the floor tonight. If you did'nt see that?, you better get new glasses. On the other hand, one game does not a season make? We quit pushig it inside and got into a three point shooting contest with them, not the brightest thing to do.

    The Illini played harder and smarter than we did. They earned this win. I'm glad that they were willing to come into our gym and hope to see them back in Spokane in a couple of years.

    Illinois sees this night in and night out, they don't get a San Diego or Pacific to take a break with.

    Better recruiting, better fan base, better competition, etc.


    But, buuuut, that's why we play these teams, because we don't get that opportunity come WCC regular season.

    They beat us. They did better. We didn't make shots in the last 5 minutes. Not much more to say. When we or any team doesn't make shots, we/they lose. Paul's obviously a superior player. We move on...........big schedule left to work with.

    Comment was more based on the fact that its b.s. that we lose games like this. About 25% is because I hate congratulating teams immediately after they dominate us on our home floor.

    Default going away from our strength...

    forcing the motion when it was unnecessary...didn't pound it down low, much at all.

    no minutes for Karnowski again, after he scored 9 pts in 9 mins.

    we needed Dower, we need Dower. he hasn't played since LC-State.

    really tough to win when your best prospects don't play or are underutilized and your guards can't make shots.

    Props to Illinois for a great game, great efforts, and great guards. A very good, albeit beatable team. Sweet shooting though...impressive win by them.

    Zags ain't no Top-10 team, they could be, if they played to their strengths a bit more.
