Illinois is in the bottom half of the big ten in every major statistical category except rebounding (36.8) and field goal percentage (%43.7), and are last in 3ptfg percentage (%30.9). The rebounding and overall accuracy seem sound, but they obviously can't hit shots when it counts and the result is 1.19 points per possession (better than only Penn st. and Michigan).
This is great. They've lost 11 of their last 14 games, starting with their last non-conference game against Tennessee State. Halfway through that stretch,their best player, Shaun Pruitt, was benched (at Ohio State) for cursing out Their head coach. I made that up. but why else would you bench your leading scorer and rebounder as your season was slipping away. My guess is that the words 'old man', and 'fuck you', were used in conjunction.
Crush the racists.
