Steve Alford didn't deny his interest in the in head coaching job

Both teams were cold at the end; IN didn't make a field goal IN the final 4:19 of the half, and Georgia Tech was without a field goal for the final 2:33. IL reacted well despite the last week's anniversary, while IN had a hard time getting anything going, as their season came to an end. In 2013, they went 29-7 and were a No. seed, but they lost in the Sweet 16.

One couldn't help but think IL might roll over in the NIT.

The speculation had grown from a din to a roar as the losses and disappoint mounted for Tom Crean and IN this season. He was also named the 2016 Big Ten Coach of the Year. They eventually took a 41-24 lead into the locker room, and the game was never in doubt as IL handed seventh-seeded Valparaiso an 82-57 loss. Now they look to the future, and March - just a year away. Their 82 points were the most they have scored since an 85-69 home win over MI. He is ranked as the No. 106 prospect in the 2018 class in the 247sports national composite rankings. Dayton is his first stop as a head coach.

Malcolm Hill jump started Illinois' momentum.

The Hoosiers tied up the game at 24-24 after a Curtis Jones' dish to Blackmon led to a breakaway layup with 4:19 on the clock, however the Yellow Jackets would close out the half on a 10-3 run to take a 34-27 lead into the break.

The NIT will cap off the collegiate career of Hill, who has been a mainstay in the Illini lineup since day one.

IN (18-16) was led by Juwan Morgan with 14 points and six rebounds.


Miller has been the head coach of the Flyers for six seasons, amassing a 140-62 record over that timeframe.

Ted Cuffe, another fan got right to the point.

There's also the question of whether Crean would be interested in the IL job - or if IL would be interested in him.

IN on the other hand was kind of set up to fail.

This forced the Hoosiers to Atlanta where they would play in Georgia Tech's home arena. But injuries and a lack of leadership followed in 2016-17 as in finished 18-16 and lost to Georgia Tech in the first round of the NIT. "I've been in a long time, 26 years now".

IN has had solid success in the state of IL, and then consistently has been able to go to the East Coast and land kids from New York/New Jersey as well as Washington D.C.

Just as March Madness was tipping off.IN chose to launch another type of March Madness.
