No passing zone

The last two games, without question, were the worst passing-the-basketball games in the last 25 years of Illini basketball. I've watched 95% of the televised games in those 25 years (and attended every home game while I was in school) and I can tell you that I've never watched back-to-back games where we looked so lost distributing the ball.

In the last two games, we have eight assists. Eight. Total. 80 minutes of basketball, eight assists. Which means that once every ten minutes -- twice per half -- an Illini player found an open teammate and he knocked down the shot and/or layup. Wait, what am I and/or-ing for? We don't find open teammates for layups. Once every ten minutes in the last two games an Illini player found an open teammate who then knocked down a shot. That's pretty unbelievable.
