This game also a bit reminiscent of Illinois 127- LSU 100 on 12/22/1988. Illini hit 100 with almost 9 minutes left. No one played more than 25 minutes. Shot 73% from field in first half. Very obvious that when the Flyin’ Illini were on, they were unstoppable.
I had to laugh watching college hoops last night when they showed Illini highlights at halftime. That amazing Curbelo thread the needle, behind the back pass didn’t make the cut. That tells you something.
