RU played well, shot very well. Thought we played well until the last four minutes where our defense broke down as did defensive rebounding. (Guessing that’s why we saw Tyler - an attempt to get the defense reset in the right places).
We’ve shown a lot of heart lately, just need to show it coming out of the locker room and I think we’re fine.
man we really ripping on TU again. it's not like he's any worse at boxing out then the entire team right now. They're also shooting 55% and we're angry at coach for wanting to try another look for 2 minutes,
First half is pretty predictable given all inputs to this point. Too much reverting to early season form after a hot start. Expect another level of intensity in second half and the crowd will have much to do with it.
On another note, can anyone tell us when was the last time the Illini had two frosh starters avg. 28 a game in tandem in B1G play? 25.4 for the season? Whiz kids? Likely never.
