DEFENSE - defend the three, defend the three, defend the three. Do not double-down on the post and stay out on shooters. Illinois can beat anybody, anywhere when they are shooting well from deep. Get out to shooters and make them hit difficult shots.

HAVE FUN - I hope to see Mbakwe and Andre Hollins having some fun out there this morning with thunderous dunks and draining threes (Mbakwe dunks and Dre shoots threes, not the other way around). Play with some passion and get this win and move on.
