The Bench

Illinois played a great overall game last night in beating Southeast Missouri State 89-64. In particular, the Illini bench was outstanding.

Tupper has story here...includes talk of Dee's buzzer-beating mid-court shot right before halftime...that shot is No. 6 on ESPN's top plays today btw.

Chicago Tribune's Neil Milbert talks about the Illini bench contributions major props to Jamar Smith, Warren Carter and Chester Frazier.

Tupper's blog here. Make sure to note very end...Copley's John Supinie undergoing triple bypass surgery this morning at Carle. Please keep him in your prayers. Supinie is a favorite of Illinitalk and linked often. In case you missed it, his recent profile on Brian Randle was top-notch.

Herb Gould of Sun-Times has the Dee Brown "We don't get nervous" quote here.

Finally, ESPN's Andy Katz give the Illini and Bruce Weber some love here for being unbeaten. It's great to exceed expectations. (This article is a little dated but it's still running on the front page of ESPN's college basketball page.)
