Seeing all the ranked teams go down earlier had me extra nervous for this one.

*whew*

NW's game was an 11 on a scale of 1-10. They were almost perfect.

Took care of business. Northwestern hit a lot of clutch shots. Spencer is going to be one of those opponents who we are going to hate for what seems like six or seven years.

Rusty win, damn layoff's, today a ton of Top25 teams went down...we did not!

Congrats to the team, Trent Frazier for his milestone.

Better figure out some things for on the road though against the lacrosse PG and BabbaBuie who will be back by then.

Trent, Giorgi, Ayo "The Closer" Dosunmu - A+
Spencer, Kopp, Beran - A
Four game winning streak - A
2nd in the Big Ten - A

A's all around. Great game by both teams. Love that we won this huge game. I-L-L!

Ayo and his clutch shots truly amazing. Equally important Brad moved him over to guard Spencer and his length on D was also a big factor.

Illini Good Game on O. Not so much on D.

I'm not gonna lie...I expected NW to tie it up with a 3 + and 1 at the end with the way they kept responding. Gotta give them their props. They made life difficult for us.

Escaped a trap game with a W. I'll take it.

Immediately after the MSU loss, someone predicted we would win the next 4. Everyone thought he was crazy.

W is a W. Move on.

P.S. That game in Evanston could be HUGE for our Tournament chances (hopefully playing for seeding, rather), and we will need a lot of orange in the arena. I call on all of my other Chicago area fans to be there!!

Any day we win and Satan’s team gets spanked is a great day.
