As much as I like Coach Groce, this game is definitely exposing how poor the Illini play defense. How many times do we have to watch Egwu not move his feet and pick up the screen roll. No fight midway through the second half. They were up by two then what? Who put the Xanax in the Gatorade?
Never thought I'd say this...but I'm really starting to miss Chester Frazier and his tenacity...he couldn't shoot...but at least he brought it defensively every game.
It used to be the way the ILLINI played basketball...where did it go?
So frustrating to get excited each year, no matter who the coach is, & see us have a promising non conference to then just get punched in the mouth time & time again in B1G play. Every year.. Turnovers & can't score. We won't be playing in March
