After watching the game I looked at the box score. We beat them in every category except for one, which is of course freethrows. 8-15 for 53%. It almost bit us tonight. I'm ecstatic about the the win, and drinking the koolaid, but come on! This would have been a comfortable win if we hit those. If Kevin hit his 1-1 at the end of the game it wouldn't have come down to a desperation shot (loved his last shot though). Oh well. All is well that ends well!

FT's is mental. I am dumbfounded as why this is occurring this year.

Pangos channeled his inner Meech tonight.

The game shouldn't have been that close near the end. There was some real piss poor defense near the end. That's of greater concern to me than the foul shooting, which obviously needs to improve.

I agree. Guys started to panic on D I think. As a teacher I think you have to be exposed to a test/situation/whatever a couple of times to really get it down. This team seems to learn well. I think they'll get better from this and be better in the future. I hope so - with all those 3s the Illini have to be licking their chops.

Very Meech-esque! Tied game, 8 seconds, runs the length, scores with 3 seconds left.

Wow!
