Illinois 89, St. Francis 64: Griffey 'enjoying the ride'

Griffey finished with 17 points, one shy of the career high he set at Michigan last year, and displayed an array of skills he hasn't made use of since his days as a star at Lafayette High in Wildwood, Mo.

"It's been a while," Griffey said after being asked how long it's been since he's had this much fun playing the game. "I'm enjoying it, enjoying the ride, enjoying my last year and just taking it one step at a time. I feel so much better. It feels good to be out there."
