Getting Ready to Brag?

The Illini basketball team is preparing to face a solid Mizzou team. The Illini are coming off an expected win at the beginning of the week, and (another) tough overtime loss Thursday. Shaun Pruitt played a great game. The Illini defense is strong. Shooting? Well, there's lots of room for improvement there.

So what will happen tomorrow night at the annual Braggin' Rights game in St. Louis? Bruce hasn't lost this game, and regardless of talent level, it's almost always a close one.

To date this season, the team seems to play just to the level of their opponent. Whether against Duke or Arizona, Weber State or Miami of Ohio, the Illini seem to be playing to a level that keeps them in the game. That's why despite the scoring challenges this team has, I'm optimistic that the rivalry game will be a good one...

Go Illini!
