  Halftime down 13
It's Illinois' largest deficit at the halftime this season and only the third time they've trailed all year. The reason they're behind is quite clearly: shot selection. Early in the game they were rushing shots and later in the game they were relying on the three-point shot too heavily. Case in point is the time they had a three-on-one break and elected to shoot a three-pointer. Their bad shots have led to fast-break opportunities for North Carolina that have translated into the 13 point deficit at the break.

The good news: we've come back from further behind with much less time left. But this is a good team and we can't wait long to get it going.
