- Shields got a lesson in what it's going to take to be the man. Illinois had a good plan and took him out of the game early, foul trouble didn't help. He'll be fine, he'll learn, but he had a rough go tonight.
- I'd say the Huskers did a nice job of getting to the line tonight, but I'm not sure that's true. That crew was terrible. NU made enough of it's own mistakes.
- Illinois has a roster full of athletes. NU's needs more of that. I think we've got some on the way, gonna take a couple of classes to get all the way there.
- Disappointed that we can't come out and play well to start games at home. Not sure why that is. Sounded like coach didn't know either.
- 14 turnovers, five assists isn't good.
That's all for tonight.
