Illini Wonk
Thursday, December 23, 2004
The spin from coach Bruce Weber and the Illini is that it was good to have to win a tough game, which I agree with to an extent, but it's also good to have everyone afraid of you. I think the Illini will still inspire fear, but they've shown a chink in their armor. Linas Kleiza was a little too mobile for Augustine and a little too big for Powell and that led to a 25-point night for the Missouri forward.

I might have to go review some game tape to find out why we were so effective against Gonzaga's Ronny Turiaf, but had so much trouble with Kleiza. We could be vulnerable to a good power forward.

However, the end result was still a "W" for Illinois in their border war with Missouri and the Illini are the boast of the town.
