Bright Spots

So there was a lot not to like about our victory Tuesday night (free throws, rebounding, turnovers, etc.), but I prefer to focus on the positive. Even if the list is short.

1. A win. No matter what it looked like, it's still a W.

2. Defense. Once again the Illini held their opponents to long scoreless stretches. And, they did a good job limiting top scorers much of the game (even if some people think Randle's play is reminiscent of "junior high defense"*).

3. Guts. Most, including Izzo, attribute Chester's excellent performance off the bench to his guts (but maybe it was the new hair style).
