Big man Sam McLaurin grading out with the Illini

"I'm always the guy who is trying to get us out of a bad situation," McLaurin said.

Richardson earned Big Ten co-player of the week Monday after scoring eight straight points to rally the Illini late against the Hoosiers. Forward Tyler Griffey, who was replaced by McLaurin in the starting lineup, ended a shooting slump and scored a team-high 16 points at Minnesota.

But McLaurin earned an ovation from his teammates, coach John Groce said, in a locker-room meeting after scoring the highest of any player in Groce's coaching career on the defensive hustle stats.
