Illini crush No. 8 Buckeyes

Egwu can be a tough cover

When the Illini use Nnanna Egwu in a ball screen and the ballhandler is able to get the corner and drive it--which happens frequently because of Paul's strength and Abrams' quickness--Egwu can be effective setting up in the defensive vacuum created by that penetration and knocking down a 14-foot jumper.
