The Champaign Room’s Twitter account, @Champaign_Room, sends out a tweet every Monday asking for your opinion on something, a ‘pulse’ of Illini nation.
With Illinois basketball having lost four of its last five games and some injury concerns with Leron Black, we figured we’d ask who you think should be in the starting five right now. Here are some of the best responses!
Trent Frazier in the lineup?
assuming Black is out: Frazier, Williams or Jordan, Smith, Nichols, Finke— mgvh (@mgvh) December 11, 2017

Not lineups, but analysis.
The 5 who brought us back against Maryland.— Lance (@1233McCain) December 11, 2017
It doesn’t matter who starts but 5 guys playing the best are Frazier, Williams, Smith , Jordan and then Lucas or Nichols. Notice the lack of height? Our big guys just don’t impress me although EBO might later this year or next year.— Justwin (@DaveLine13) December 11, 2017
I really don't think it matters but I think once BU sees who is playing well that game, he needs to cut the rotation down to who is performing— Collin Toennies (@CollinToez) December 11, 2017
