Feliz was an excellent help defender but not necessarily an on ball defender, Alan was niether. It is hard for anyone to replace Feliz's guts. If the transfers, Frazier and Miller can shoot straight we may not need Ayo's late game heroics
Does anyone remember that during the for game losing streak Trent was in early foul trouble several times. Did Alan being in foul trouble ever hurt the Illini? Trent was much more important tent to the team success.
