Late in the 2nd half BJ told them to take it down (shot click) and Samuel's hoist a Brock with 10 seconds left. During the next time out BJ brought it up to him.
We have to control tempo. Looking at Illinois and their athletes, if they crash to the basket and dictate the way the game is played, they will be at us by double digits. The Gophers have to play team defense and not give good looks to Illinois. They have to get rebounds because this Illinois team will hit the boards hard. Looking at how Illinois took down MSU, this game will be won or lost on the block. Payne, Garcia, and our guys down low will have to be outstanding. If we can control tempo and play like we did against ohio, we can give ourselves a chance.Do you think the team will give it a go at Illinois? Hot take.
