Gameday: U men vs. Illinois

  • Updated: January 27, 2012 - 11:11 PM

Gophers at a glance: After notching three consecutive victories, the Gophers were outmuscled in a double-digit loss earlier this week at Michigan State. The Gophers had shot 51.6 percent in the previous three games but managed just 38.3 from the field against the Spartans. Forward Rodney Williams -- who hit three three-pointers on Wednesday -- led the Gophers, scoring 15 points and grabbing four rebounds, but otherwise a lot of the lineup struggled. Austin Hollins and Ralph Sampson III were all but absent after solid outings against Northwestern, and Joe Coleman, while scoring nine points with eight rebounds, committed a turnover in a critical moment.

Illinois at a glance: It's hard to know what to expect out of the Illini. Two weeks ago, they upset Ohio State behind a 43-point performance by Brandon Paul -- and other times they look like a midmajor team. After losing at Penn State, the Illini ran into a hot Wisconsin team and lost their second in a row. The Gophers played at Illinois in the first conference game of the season, taking the game to double overtime before losing. The Illini have three scorers averaging in double figures: Paul is averaging 14 points, Meyers Leonard is at 13.3 (and 7.8 rebounds) and D.J. Richardson is averaging 12.7 points.
