Watching the Illinois Fighting Illini dominate in such spectacular fashion yesterday was very welcome. Far too many times recently the Illini have played tight games, and it’s nice to give the old ticker a chance to just enjoy a win for a change.
Aside from the fantastic ball distribution, and quality shooting that the Illini displayed yesterday there were three plays that stood out as potential plays of the game. Luckily for Illinois fans web-wide Dan at Illinois Loyalty put together some animated gif’s so that everyone that might have missed them live can get a second chance to see them.
We, at Writing Illini, are curious which one you liked the best. So, please take time to vote in the poll below after watching each choice!
Without any further ado, here are the nominees for plays of the game versus Auburn.
Rayvonte Rice Displays His Athleticism With a Nifty Reverse Layup
The Elder Statesmen Alley-Oop (Abrams to Bertrand)
The Young Guns Connect to Throw One Down (Tate to Colbert)
Play number 3 was the choice by the live television broadcast for play of the game, but for my money I am choosing Rayvonte Rice’s highly athletic reverse.
Once again, a huge thanks to Illinois Loyalty for making these available.
So, Illini Nation, what do you think?
