Rapid reaction: NU 49, Illinois 43
Here are WildcatReport's initial thoughts following Northwestern's biggest win of the season.
Did you see that? Alley-oop to Egwu. We generally pick a Northwestern play for this, but Illinois (as expected) provided the most exciting ones. Down 37-34 with 6:30 remaining after a Tre Demps three-pointer, Illini point guard Tracy Abrams raced down the court looking for a quick answer. He drove toward the left corner and lobbed a one-handed pass toward the basket. Center Nnanna Egwu, unmarked, rose up and jammed home the alley-oop.
