Tonight, the Illinois Fighting Illini hosted the IPFW Mastodons for their seventh game of the 2013-14 season. After a sloppy first half, Illinois was able to squeak out the 57-55 victory and had their share of big plays along the way.
With 8:47 left in the 2nd half, Illinois freshman Kendrick Nunn showed his tremendous defensive ability when he had a complete monster block on IPFW freshman Mo Evans. The block complete blew up on Twitter from the members of Illini Nation.
The blocked shot that has to be seen to be believed. Lucky for all of us, Dan over at illinoisloyalty.com put together an animated gif of the play. Huge thanks to Dan for posting this gif to the web because Illini fans everywhere need to see the effort Nunn put forth in stopping a sure layup.
What do you think Illini Nation? What was your reaction to this block by the young freshman?
