Well Illinois got outclassed by Indiana, stillborn exciting basketball. Hope Wisconsin knocks of Michigan, but I doubt that

Well, Illinois showed up for the 2nd half, unfortunately for Illinois a college basketball game is comprised of a 1st and 2nd half…

All Illinois did all day is dribble the air out of the ball going nowhere with it and shoot contested 3′s…not winning basketball
