State fought valiantly, but was ultimately done in by a 27.4 offensive TO%, Illinois' otherworldly offensive efficiency (120.7!), and a virtuoso performance by Demetri McCamey. It's an understandable and predictable loss, but it still hurts. Tuesday's game against Purdue looms large, and Kalin needs to heal at warp speed.
KJ will have your recap later this evening. Until then, vent here.
