The SportsTalk Live crew discuss Illinois' thrilling victory over Minnesota and look ahead to their matchup with Indiana in the Big Ten tournament - 3/14
For the first time in six years Big Ten tournament back in the United Center Illinois Minnesota in the first round it was. Blue -- -- start over at the United Center down three they had possession for over a minute. DJ Richardson ties it up as we know and love 44 seconds left there. Then after yet another miss but it turned over today gonna get the ball back there you see the clock ticking down. Brandon hall with the ball in his -- -- chance to it. So I did no good Gus Johnson in game. Only -- with the ball line I wanted and they now go on to face Indiana the red. -- season champ in the opener tomorrow. Didn't stand a chance against India and -- before and I tell you in games like that make you anxious for the real turn to begin rolling and made it. The defensive stand. Before the game whenever grandpa always agreement inbound -- Minnesota came in the in the on the ball that was something else that's. And that won the game and in my opinion they are you can't even interest in these conference tourney is anymore down I mean this week is. Again -- and that's what gets you. And into -- a warm up -- pain when the buzzer beaters that's for you -- because that was it was not. And easy game to not that's not an off but. You know it's funny I kept thinking while of course pregnant pause and take the last shot it was not clear out played this is like going back to the playground days you know where's it from Gurney up there. So yeah this is don't cleared out given to Brandon. Everybody knew he was gonna take that shot apparently except. The entire Minnesota team -- them they couldn't stop bad but actually there's three of them all -- -- seniors now have ten game winning shot. I was thinking with fifteen starts I think that's that's the probably the best way to describe it they have a chance against Indiana -- -- -- I would I would give a small chance but absolutely they beat -- like Adam was saying once already this year -- mean it's a neutral court game maybe even a -- Illinois crowd who -- Indiana -- real well we -- while -- in the area but -- wanting to play Illinois is if they -- well it can beat anybody -- the up and they're gonna push the -- But today's shoot very well it still came away with a victory was an ugly game like Jerry -- sank. But if they shoot well lights out absolutely can but that can -- Brandon Paul looks like you might have one of those special post season run -- on the floor they have the the local kids flavor and a couple of important seniors on their team as -- us.
