: First ever meeting
Opposing Blog: Hail to the Orange

Without our leading scorer in Xavier Silas, the Huskies might struggle against the mighty Fighting Illini today. But if the Miami Redhawks can hang with the #4 Kentucky Wildcats like they did yesterday, anything is possible.

Keys to the game:

  • Stay composed (less turnovers and air balls)
  • Start making some 3-pointers
  • Get to the line and make the freebies
  • Stop hacking
Reading Material:
For some of us old-timers, tonight’s Northern Illinois University men’s basketball game at the Assembly Hall against the University of Illinois might be the equal of President Richard Nixon going to the People’s Republic of China in 1972 or the Berlin Wall symbolically falling in the late 1980s – a historical first.

Does anybody have an 'Appetite For Destruction'?
