Winning Illini.....

Ho hum, another game another win for the best team in the land. As I've discussed, Illinois wins with teamwork, and that teamwork showed last night against Northwestern, not the greatest squad, but one that rarely gets blown out of games. Sure, Dee Brown was the leader of this charge, with 20 points, 5 assists and only 3 turnovers, but the team's unselfishness is what made this game a blowout. Illinois landed 32 shots, and 22 of them came after assists, continuing a startling trend wherein the Fighting Illini are getting 65% of their baskets off of assists on the season.
