Illinois 72, Northwestern 67 POSTGAME

The search continues for a game scenario in which Ahmad Starks will not take absolutely inexcusable shots.

If you're keeping track at home, "Leading a road game late and on the floor with an unconscious Nunn, a playing-his-best-game-yet Cosby, and ready-to-close-out-these-fools Hill" can be crossed off the list.

Feel good win tonight!! We played well and took a pretty good shot from an average (maybe) Big Ten team on the road. Lots to build on tonight including Cosby getting his stroke back :)

Very happy. Nunn making free throws is great to see and groce having the guys ready for either scenario.

+1... inexcusable for JFG to expect Starks to make good decisions late in the game at this point.

Great win. Needed it.

My concern is Malcolm. He looked like he was limping out there. Hope it's not serious.

Great night by Kendrick. Good to see him being aggressive and score.

a much needed road win - good game by KN and AC.

Way to gut it out. Huge FT from Nunn down the stretch. Monster games from Nunn and Cosby. Lots to be happy about with this one.

Starks is still troubling to watch.

Really happy that Cosby finally showed what he is capable of! :illinois:

LOL. At least he tried to screw it up in style with the unnecessary reverse brick.

Thank God. A loss to NW would have deflated these kids and eroded the rest of January. Glad we kept it together and got a "road" win!

Illini= +1 !

The thing that disturbs me with Starks is that he figured out his mid-range game is better and then completely abandoned it.

Great win from this team. Great response overall, and here's hoping Cosby keeps it up.

Cosby and Nunn did a great job of picking up the slack tonight. This win is something to build on. NW concentrated on stopping Hill which opened it up for Cosby and Nunn to step up.
