    Default Illinois 2019-20

    The Illini non-con with last season's NCAA RPI. If Illinois had scheduled 11 games rather than 9, I'm sure they would've challenged Bucky for the worst non-conference schedule. Whatever, I'm still baffled about last season's Gopher loss to the Illini. Yes, I'll get over it...eventually.

    Ariel Scott will not play for the Illini this season:

    The Illinois athletic department announced in a release on Friday afternoon that Scott had been granted a medical noncounter waiver, which will allow the sophomore to remain on scholarship this school year but not count toward the Illini women's basketball team's scholarship limit for the upcoming campaign.

    Scott will continue to pursue her degree at the University of Illinois but not be on the court when Illinois tips off its season on Nov. 5 by hosting Chicago State at State Farm Center.

    “While we are disappointed that Arieal will not join us on the court, we are supportive of the decision to focus on her health,” Illini third-year head coach Nancy Fahey said Friday. “Student-athlete wellness is of the utmost importance and we are thankful that she will have the opportunity to continue to pursue her degree on scholarship at the University of Illinois while focusing on personal needs.”

    Scott, who missed Illinois' overseas trip to Australia earlier this month due to "personal reasons," played in 26 games during her first season with the Illini, starting two of them. She posted 8.8 points per game while averaging 19 minutes and shooting 32 percent from the field.
    Gopher fans remember last season's dagger:
