Luther head dunks on MSU
Early in the second half at Michigan State, MSU went on a run that cut the score to 43-40. Then, Luther Head took over with two three-point swishes from the wing and this dunk off of a steal. posted by Illiniwonk at 11:02 AM
I love the fact that 4 of the 5 MSU players haven't crossed the center court line in this photo. And the one that did is just jogging along. Sweet.
It is an imposing place to play. That's why Illini Wonk was so impressed that Illinois made winning there look so easy. A sports-writer who was at the game emailed me and said:
The Izzone was impressive, make no mistake, but they got taken out of the game a bit by all those first-half 3-pointers. Every time the place would get good and rocking, Dee Brown or Luther Head (or Williams or McBride) would hit a 3, and this feeling of dread -- we can't beat Illinois -- took over.
