Marco Killingsworth decided to play defense, and do some rebounding, though he apparently had to use goonish tactics to do so. Now, I understand that the Big Ten is a tough conference, but to be called for an intentional foul indicates that he either is a complete goon, or he is sloppy. Either way, he needs to play hard and smart.
Robert Vaden seemed to force the issue way too much, and I appreciate that more than lack of hustle. For the fans to storm the court seemed weak, but beating the Illini is never something to take lightly.
So, after a real tough portion of the schedule, IU is a half game behind Wisconsin, and tied in the loss column.
Purdue, at Iowa, at Minnesota, and Northwestern. 4-0, or certainly 3-1 is what is required.
