09:38 AM ET 03.24 | Since Virginia Commonwealth coach Shaka Smart turned down Illinois' head coaching job offer Wednesday, Illini fans have had a little time to readjust their wish list. The school is doing the same. Smart was the top option for Illinois athletic director Mike Thomas in his quest to replace fired coach Bruce Weber, but now his attention will turn to other candidates. According to Tribune sources, Ohio University coach John Groce is receiving consideration, along with Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins, Duke assistant Jeff Capel and Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall. Alabama's Anthony Grant and Florida State's Leonard Hamilton remain interested.

Formidable bunch, those Mildcats. ;)As for the Bucks...they have a chance. I think William Buford simply MUST have a stellar game in order for tOSU to have any hope of winning, though.

he can have a huge game, since chances are he won't be the one being keyed on....the Bucks need to do to the 'Cuse zone what they did to Cincy's zone in the first half....if they can get the extra pass to the open man and hit the open shot, they have a good chance.

Thank you Sir. It is something when your best big man sits on the bench, does not have a good game, and they still do that, wow. How do you think you will fare against Cuse? I am pulling for you.

UK's big man goes out with 2 fouls, and within the next minute, IU's Zeller picks up 2 cheap ones and Olidipo picks up his 2nd cheap one.....

I thought the officiating sucked...for both teams...not just against Indiana. But I could be wrong!
