A tough timeout from paradise

"As soon as the game-winning shot was upheld and we knew Illinois had won, the Illini coaches pounced on Jerry," Kelly said. "Coach Groce went right to Jerry and reached over the table and threw his arms around him. He knocked Jerry's headset off and I'm sure you could hear it on the air.

"The other coaches grabbed him too and coach Groce told him they were dedicating the victory to his father."
