The Illinois Fighting Illini and Indiana Hoosiers opened up Big Ten play on the final day of 2013, and the end result was an Illini victory that was highlighted by Rayvonte Rice tying a career best in points with 29. It also had a couple of huge plays including what could possibly go down as the best alley-oop we might see all season long.
Luckily for Illinois fans web-wide, Dan at Illinois Loyalty put together some animated gif’s so that everyone that might have missed these plays 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 the Indiana Hoosiers from yesterday’s game.

Rayvonte Rice to Joseph Bertrand for the Reverse Jam from way Downtown
Now, far be it from me to tell you what to vote for, but the Reverse Jam by Bertrand on the long feed from Rice was the play that made me yell out loud from my couch. So, that’s the one that I am going to vote for out of these three options, and you know what? It’s so nice let’s see it twice!
Once again, thanks to Illinois Loyalty for making these gifs available! Be sure to vote in the poll below, although I think it’s a done deal on which one will take the crown from this group. I-L-L!
