Twitter Q&A: Illinois State

Sound right. No win over Gonzaga means no preseason top 25. Means slow moving up the polls.

I hadn’t thought about that. Maybe I should let somebody else do it.

Nope, Shaq is a paint player. He can shoot, but I don’t think it will be his primary job. Guard drills will help his skills.

If he uses his height, yes. If the zone makes him passive or if he draws charging fouls driving vs. the zone, no. He’s been on a roll in recent games, so I’ll say he plays well and gets his 16-plus points.
