Illinois guards suffer huge shooting slump

Not only did Paul, the Illini's leading scorer, have a poor offensive outing, but he was joined by D.J. Richardson and Tracy Abrams, the team's trio of starters. They combined to make 10 of 40 shots and three of 20 3-pointers in the worst shooting meltdown of the season for the previously unbeaten Illini (12-1).

"Our execution was a little bit off," Paul said. "A lot of that's in the hands of me and Tracy. We have to get everybody focused and make sure everyone knows what we're doing. We usually take a lot of good shots, and we took some questionable shots, including myself. That didn't allow us to get into the offense we wanted and put us in a bind."
