The annual Braggin' Rights Game. Illinois leads the series 20-11, including 9 in a row from 2000-2008. Mizzou has won 3 straight though, so that means this is the last chance for Paul, Richardson and Griffey to beat the Tigers.

It's going to be a test inside defensively for Egwu and Griffey. Bowers and Oriakhi are going to be tough.

Down just 6 at half after a terrible shooting first half. 30% from the field, 23% from 3.

Couldn't make anything from 3, and couldn't make anything when we drove into the lane. Thank god for Paul getting to the line.

Illinois claws its way back to take a 1 point lead. Intensity is keeping them in the game. 4-22 from three. This wouldn't even be a game if they were shooting like they usually do. Worried about Richardson and Abrams though, 4 fouls each with 11:50 left in the game.

Worst shooting performance I've seen this year from Illinois. Just awful. Only down 3 with Mizzou going to the line with 3:33 left in the game.

What a shitty performance on offense. Live and die by the three, and tonight they choked on it. Everybody but Tyler Griffey.

Paul 2-8
Richardson 1-9
Abrams 0-3
Bertrand 1-4

8-31 for three. Worst performance I've seen. 9 point loss to Mizzou.

Out rebounded 48-30. You can chalk that total up to all the missed threes, but if that continues, it'll be a long Big Ten season. So many botched rebounds tonight. '13 recruit Maverick Morgan is going to see a lot of available minutes next season.
