Illinois in must-win situation against Badgers

Groce has cracked the whip on defensive improvement leading into today's game.

"We did some really good things on the offensive end," Groce said. "We scored 75 points on 74 offensive possessions against a really good defensive club. Our shot selection was good. We moved the ball well. We really took care of the ball except for the first five minutes of the second half.

"But defensively we were not as good. We struggled to guard ball screens and we fouled too much. We have to clean some things up there. We want to play better defensively and that will be the emphasis (today)."
