Stats Preview: Illini at tOSU

We are moving in the right direction again, thx to opening up the driving lanes, and Griffins play in particular. 

Ohio State looks like a 'better' version of our team in terms of stats ... slightly better defense, MUCH better 3 point shooting.  They just took out a good Michigan team in Columbus.

Winning at tOSU is a TALL order - it will require our best.  Gotta get those BIG Tourney bye games!

Well, Someone other than Ayo has to show up to these big road games.  Even in the first half, we seemed 'nervous', or at least timid and not able to hang on to the ball well.  The officials kept the game close as OSU guards were fouled every time they hit the lane.  And if not, we dont always play the screen well and they got easy put backs if the guard just threw the ball up to the rim.  We had our chances, but missed open looks from 3.  Both Andres and Trent went 1/6.  Ayo was the best guy on the court.. again, and is a legit POY candidate.
