Film Session: The Illini’s run

  • 03/17/2014 7:48 am in

In Thursday’s opening round loss to the Illini in the Big Ten Tournament, a strong start to the second half saw the Hoosiers up five at 38-33 with 12:33 to go. But some turnovers and missed shots during a 14-2 Illinois run over about the next four minutes of game time sunk their chances for victory.

We’ll take a look at what Indiana was allowing the Illini to do offensively during their run in the final edition of the Film Session for the 2013-2014 season:

With Indiana still up five, Nnanna Egwu is able to track down a rebound in the corner off a Kendrick Nunn miss. He throws it back up top to Rayvonte Rice:


Rice swings to Tracy Abrams. Egwu comes up to set a ball screen for him:


Will Sheehey plays the screen by going over the top. But Abrams takes it the other way and has a step on him. This leaves Devin Davis to defend Abrams:


Abrams brings it into the lane on Davis:


He’s able to get his body into him to draw contact and hit the shot as he’s fouled:

    I’m in favor of one of the ITH writers completely making up some kind of positive story (if they can find an actual positive story to post, all the better but I kind of doubt it!) to make us all feel at least a tiny bit better about things. It’s been a rough stretch!

    Yeah, love these film sessions, but just REALLY not in the mood, right now, to watch clips of the Illini running through us for easy baskets.
