I'm going to the Pape` Jam on Saturday at the Garden. Look for me on ESPN or whoever carries the game. I'll be the crazy lunatic in Orange and Blue. Go ILLINI. At 10-0 and fresh of a home victory against Georgetown, the hungry ILLINI look to make it a prime number performance against the mighty DUCKS from Eugene.
We were up by as much as 15 points at one point, but hung on to win 58-48 in the great Assembly Hall of Champaign. That place rocks as one of the largest home court advantages on campus in the game. Hail to the chief!
Dee had 16 and James had his 4th 2x/2x of the season to lead the way. Senior leadership - can't beat it. We were up 28-13 at the half. Can you say defense? Bring on the ducks....we're game.
