Illinois ran it's record to 14-0 by beating Tennessee-Martin last night. Big news of the night: Rich McBride's 21 points and James Augustine setting the Illini rebounding record. If McBride can continue to pour in the points, I believe Illinois will be a solid Final Four contender come tourney time.

The Trib's Neil Milbert talks about Illinois' incredible winning streak in the year 2005 here.

Tupper has some interesting comments from Tennessee-Martin's coach about Illinois' defense here.

Tupper's blog addresses the Illini's schedule, looks ahead to Big Ten conference play and has an update on John Supinie here.

Augie gets love from the Sun-Times here.

Clark Kellogg predicts Illinois will finish behind Sparty and the Hoosiers in conference play here. (Not sure we agree with him on Indiana...Bruce Weber can outcoach Mike Davis any day when it comes to X's and O's.)

Let's here it for the fans! Journal-Star notes this was the Illini's 20th straight sellout. (That's saying something with the students still gone.)
