Last night, Illinois lost to Miami 63-59, but the game was fun. Nobody expected Illinois to beat the highly touted Miami Hurricanes in the NCAA Tournament, but they very nearly pulled it off. They played the entire game well, putting in the maximum effort. Sports is supposed to be fun, and that game was fun last night. Illinois coach John Groce, and his team, should be proud of the way they played. I look forward to a bright future for Illinois basktball.
