Hawks need to win two games to avoid the 7 seed in the NCAA tournament. I don’t feel great about having a quick turnaround from Thursday to Friday with a short bench in what will absolutely be another physical dogfight.

I have nothing substantial to back this up but the Minnesota game scares me more than Illinois. They're way better than their record. Something to be said for them finding ways to lose all these games but they've had some shitty luck. They have streaky shooters and Oturu is a monster.

If we get past Thursday, we're playing Saturday. Illinois won't get the whistle they got tonight on a neutral court. Not a good shooting team, we've controlled Kofi for the most part. I like our chances against them in Indy coming off a win.

Minnesota is going to be desperate as fuck. Haven’t checked the NET rankings in a while but is probably a quad 1 game as well.

It's cliche, but Thursday really is the start of a new season. 20-11 and 11-9 in the Big Ten was a hell of an accomplishment for this team.

They are good enough to win the BTT.

Disagree. I don't think they are going to be all that desperate. They need a miracle run and make it to the final to even make the NIT.

I think Minnesota leaves it all on the floor and wins a close one vs NW. And then after a slow start Iowa takes them to pound town.

Alright, share with the class.
Similar shenanigans to the supposed McCabe/White spat. It’s obviously bs but I heard it twice over the weekend from people that are most definitely not insiders!

I just threw it out here to see if anyone else heard something similar.

Lol, that was circulating before the season and seems to either be way overblown or bullshit.

Which was what... McCabe tried to sleep with White's girl? Or the other way around?

I honestly hadn’t heard it until this weekend.

Hopefully the rumors about Joe W and Lukas’s girlfriends putting the double team on wanderer don’t get out before the tournaments are over.

No worries. I read somewhere that the winner of the first two has a 75% chance of winning the third.
