Big Ten Media Day was Wednesday in Chicago for the 2019-20 Men’s Basketball season!
We weren’t there, and we’re guessing you weren’t too, so here’s a bunch of stuff you missed today.
The day started off well with Ayo Dosunmu being named to the All-Big Ten First Team.
Dosunmu, Giorgi Bezhanishvili and Trent Frazier repped the Orange and Blue in Chicago with Brad Underwood.
Brad said the right things.
#illini Underwood: It's nice to have a few familiar faces back in our program. Had a very productive summer. It's been refreshing to have carryover.— Jeremy Werner (@JWerner247) October 2, 2019
#illini Underwood: I think we have a different swagger. There's a different feel about us just from the experience. There's not the giddiness from the unknown.— Jeremy Werner (@JWerner247) October 2, 2019
He also talked about us: the fans! And our suffering!
"It has been a while. ...Nothing would make me happier not just for our players but for our fans to get back in the tournament. ...It should be an every-year experience for us."— Jeremy Werner (@JWerner247) October 2, 2019
Enough about Brad. Let’s actually hear some voices.
So, the day ended well.
Giorgi didn’t have any Giorgi moments, but his suit was nice.

Ya know, it’s nice to finally have a core.
That’s a wrap on @B1GMBBall Media Day!— Brad Underwood (@CoachUnderwood) October 2, 2019
Grateful for another opportunity to talk about @IlliniMBB with a little help from our #EveryDayGuys @AyoDos_11 , @_Trentfrazier1 and Giorgi B. pic.twitter.com/IUIk2MSqnf
But, you didn’t miss much. But did you even remember Juwan Howard was coaching Michigan now???
