Illinois 105, Minnesota 97 Postgame



Eugene, Oregon

The Gophers were on fire.

But the better team won, nonetheless.

Not enough defensive resistance, for sure. But several gophers were abnormally nice from deep tonight.

Game ball to Dain Dainja for spinning gold from his precious minutes on the floor, making winning plays on both sides of the court. The unwavering tenacity in his play, game after game, despite the cage they’ve put around the Dancing Bear, is supremely admirable.

Let’s keep tightening the grip as we march towards March.
