Can Illini exploit good practices?

Groce said Illinois has worked on tightening up a number of details, including screening and blocking out on the glass. But he said Illinois' difficulties could most easily be grouped into two categories.

"One, our defensive efficiency has been up and down," he said. "We have to impact the game more defensively than what we're doing. We did that early-on better than we're doing it now."
