Impressive Win Tonight

1) Dee Brown looked like Allen Iverson, taking shots all over the court and making them. Very solid all-around play.

2) Thought Rich McBride and Jamar Smith contributed some really nice things, a huge combined scoring night for the backcourt. Especially liked some of Smith's nifty dishes on the move.

3) Shaun Pruitt's dunk-and-one is my favorite play of the year so far. Loved seeing the aggressiveness.

4) Big win in a hostile environment should lead the Illini to a 14-0 non-conference schedule. This was the game that I most thought they could lose heading into the season, so to win this one going away with the game Thursday night and the travel is very impressive.

Comments:
Malik Hairston's comment-"I don't think we have a clue." was rather telling. Ernie Kent, the pride of Rockford. His teams never played defense. Frankly I was surprised Oregon didn't sack him in the summer-there were lots of rumors floating around.
 
we really did look good.. If Dee can play like that going forward, dare I say we have a legitamte shot at a final four?

Randle just totally took Hairston out of the game. I didn't hear the announcers even say his name until late in the second half
