Hunter Dickinson might have left the B1G with a transfer to Kansas, but the former Michigan big man was back facing a league opponent with a Sunday scrimmage against Illinois.

Despite being a preseason All-American on the No. 1 ranked team, Dickinson and the Jayhawks fell in that scrimmage in Champaign. During the game, Dickinson had one particularly hard foul that was reviewed as a potential Flagrant 1 situation.

After the game, Dickinson was asked about his relationship with Illinois fans. The big man is now winless against the Illini dating back to his first season at Michigan.

“Uhh, you know I think its — Um, that’s a good question, shit,” said Dickinson. “Um… You know, it’s uh, I think there’s a — I can’t even give you a good answer right now, I’m sorry.”

Over the course of his time in Ann Arbor, Dickinson dialed up a number of interesting comments directed at Illinois. That includes Illinois clamoring over the B1G title going to Michigan for the 2020-21 season and Dickinson’s claim that Illini fans are “annoying” from a few years ago.

We’ll see if Dickinson and the Illini face off again later this season, but for now, Illinois gets the last laugh once again.
