Illinois played its best, most complete game of the season in beating Minnesota by 27 at State Farm Center last week. Then the Illini followed that up by losing by 24 at Iowa just four days later. A staggering run of highs and lows for the Illinois fan base. The Illini will be back in action at 8 p.m. Wednesday against Wisconsin.

Illinois' losing streak continued Sunday at Northwestern in another winnable game that turned out anything but. However, about an hour after that 68-66 defeat the Illini landed five-star center Kofi Cockburn. Talk about the gamut of emotions for Illinois fans. Of course, that provides plenty of fodder for this week's chat. Interested in what's next on the recruiting front?

Jan. 2 Illinois basketball chat

New year, new team? That's probably what the Illinois men's basketball team is hoping for. The Illini's New Year's Resolutions? A little more balance offensively, better on-ball defense and enough wins not to be included in the list of teams that couldn't reach double figures for the season.
