Go back to the Arizona game and the great comeback/OT victory .. last night not quite to that level but such a grind out winVery proud of our team. And our coaches. Not sure I have ever seen a game like that, and I have been watching the Illini closely since 1975.
That is pretty amazing when you think of the young guards we play and Egwu who has really bad hands. Speaks volumes of how the guys take care of the ball. Tate, Starks, Nunn and Hill are pretty good taking care of the rock. Rice too.I think Dan Dakich is a great announcer and last night was a very good example.
BTW, while the game was far from pretty and the Illini shot poorly for most of it, the team had only 7 TOs. Pretty darn good.
Nope. I've watched highlights of some lopsided overtimes, but a 14-0 run is the largest I've ever seen. Add that to the 7-0 run to end the game, and this one is well past the line where we ask 'why doesn't that happen to us?'. It's something positive that most programs will never experience.I am just wondering, has anyone ever seen such a complete domination in any overtime, any sport, anywhere? 14-2! AND, with the last 7 points of regulation, 21-2!
