Groce sees positives in Illini's first loss

"I just don't think our quality of 3 was great tonight, to be honest," Groce said. "How do you get the best 3s? This isn't brain surgery. You get them in transition. You get them off offensive rebounds and kick-outs. You get them [off] post touch. You get them off drive-and-kick. Or you get them off some sort of set play you run to put them at a disadvantage. Tonight, I thought a lot of our 3s were not coming from those means as much as they have been in the past."
