Scratching my head as to why AG was not in more in the last 10 mins. I love DMW as an illini, but especially when the other team is going to zone, we need shooters. We also needed his rebounding - geesh the number of offensive rebounds they got...
This would almost always be a great display to flash to make the anti DaMonte playing arguement...just not this game, as the main person who most clamor about to take the starter position only had 3 himself today. DaMonte did get a big block, but they still scored. Griffin was off today, most days the arguement would make sense though.
Yeah...and away game at NW is the one everyone is considering one of few likely away wins. Penn State wins over OSU...most realistically expecting road challenges ahead except for Ptown who expects to run the table almostRusty 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.
He gets tough buckets when buckets are tough to get. It’s hard to find guys like that.I love Adam Miller's game, followed his play for years. But I am 100% ok missing out on him if by some freak accident Ayo decides to be a 4 year player. The level of play from Ayo is outstanding as of late.
When the team is shooting over 50% we just dont need DW or AG offense. I did love the backdoor bounce pass from DW to Ayo cutting. We did well with 4 guards later in game, with DW in lineup. AG will have many shining moments as an Illini...his O was luckily not needed today.I like DMW too, but lets be realistic ,he has no offense to his game. Especially in a zone he should play only very limited minutes. Every time he gets the ball the defense sags off him, just daring him to shoot. I really thought Griffin should have played more at the end. He could of helped with rebounding and his length may have caused NW to miss a couple of shots. On whole I thought we played our best half court offense I have seen for a while and NW is going to beat some teams if they continue to play like they did today.
Let's goooo! It wasn't always pretty but they found a way to get it done.
