Illini need to snap skid

I'll cut right to the chase: What you're watching now is the residue of recruiting misfires the past five years. What you're watching is a team whose core is made up of fourth-year players who have never been able to sustain success, who have never been skilled shooters or ball-handlers, who are capable of rising up and playing the occasional terrific game, but have never been able to do it over and over and over again.

It's not coach John Groce, who has done a remarkable job trying to coax confidence from this group he inherited.
