Illini emphasizing rebounding vs Ohio State

In Wednesday's game against Purdue, Illinois was outrebounded 45-35 overall and 17-13 offensively in another loss. The Boilermakers had 15 second-chance points in the 68-61 win.

"I think just continue to make it more of an emphasis and getting everybody involved," Groce said on Friday. "I think we're a team that has to gang-rebound it. We are. All five guys have to be involved in it.

"I think at times we've done a decent job of doing that, and other times as I've watched I don't think we've done a very good job at doing that. We got to be more consistent in that area."
