    6 blocks for Illini made the difference. With decent FT shooting we win by 20.

    Illinois 99, Rutgers 94 OT POSTGAME

    Kind of like Egwu. He was raw in the beginning but ended up as the heart and soul of the team. Giorgi has obviously worked on his FTs and can't be considered an easy target to foul to put him on the line. His moves to both the right and left make him hard to double team, as we saw in the OT.

    The facility is used for more than basketball. No AC meant that it couldn't be used during the summer. Now there are concerts and other events during the summer that never had been booked before. The sound system, lighting, video board were also great enhancements. All in all it was a great...

    What is the biggest win in Illinois history?

    I was at that game sitting in the top row of the C section. The place was packed and went nuts after the win. For a brief moment we were #1. Of course losing 4 of the next 5 ended the hope.
