22-0; not that close!

22-0 is a school record for consecutive wins; with 18 in a row in Big-Ten Play. 17 more to go. 39 or bust. The March to the arch continued tonight in East Lansing. That was a balanced attack.

It's nice when it's unanimous; first time since Duke in '99 the country has an undisputed #1 in college hoops. Make that 9 weeks in a row. We're starting to break records dating back to 1914.

1989 was a great season - and we should have finished it the right way with our first National Title; but that wasn't in the cards for the Flyin' Illini of Battle, Norman, Hamilton, Anderson, Gill, and Bardo. That was a great time. But this year's squad is a bit different - we have great chemistry and nobody cares who gets the credit. I like how we move the rock on offense. If we keep shooting this well from deep then it's going to be a great run through March. Nobody can transition with us. Few squads play better team defense.

Deron and Dee are playing well but could and will play better. Right now, and I've said this before, Luther is carrying this team with his ability to penetrate, create, and finish. Wow, can you say underrated? He makes the rest of the team better.

Next week we get the Wolverines in Ann Arbor. I'm not looking past that, but the Iowa game in Iowa City looms large. So does that Badger game in Champaign on Lincoln's Birthday. No way the cheeseheads win that one in Illinois - LAND OF LINCOLN! Hail to the Chief.....
