According to Torvik’s game score, Illinois 2 games against Purdue were a 100 and 99 (out of 100). Easily our best 2 games of the year. http://www.barttorvik.com/team.php?team=IllinoisIs there some sort of power rating for individual games! Our win at purdue considering how they demolished both Iowa and Michigan State is impressive
Step away from the ledge!Holy Heck...how did Purdue crush Iowa that badly last night and we fought them tooth and nail?! Is it simply that we match up so much better against Purdue? Is it that Iowa really isn't that good, therefore we really aren't that good? How fickle is my confidence in this team, but scores like 100+ to 60+ points is stark!!
Just goes to show our coaches had Purdue schemed so well. Purdue made 19 threes against Iowa, if I'm not mistaken we only allowed Purdue to ATTEMPT 8 threes all game at Mackey. BU and staff game planned for PU perfectly. In two games against UI, Purdue only made 6 3PTs on 25 attempts.Step away from the ledge!
It's called Every Three Pointer Went In. Flawless strategy.
