I just realized can anyone explain to me how the rematch of last years national championship is at 5:30 and on FS1. Probably should have hyped that up a little more!

Watched a good bit of Georgetown-Illinois.  Not sure about the quality of either team, but the game was fun to watch - quick pace and back and forth until the last couple of minutes when Illinois couldn't make a play.

 

One thing, which most already know, Illinois will be extremely pesky.  They're pressuring style is such that they commit a foul against the opposing ball handler every time but they typically find the sweet spot where the refs aren't willing to blow the whistle.  Hard/frustrating to play against that - you get sliced by a million paper cuts but can never get a call.

 

I think NU's defensive length will give them problems, though, if NU can shut down driving lanes.
