D.J. Richardson having a senior season to remember

Once again, the bright spot offensively for Illinois was D.J. Richardson, who scored 18 points on 11 shots. The senior guard is having the best conference season of his career, and it's not even close.

In the past, Richardson has had a nasty habit of disappearing in conference play, but he's thriving in his final go-round. Richardson has had similar numbers to former Iowa guard Matt Gatens his entire career, and it looks like he is duplicating Gatens' fantastic senior season. Good thing for the Illini, as running mate Brandon Paul is in a bit of a slump. Paul scored three points and fouled out against Purdue, making the big margin all the more impressive.
