If I was at the game I would have booed Legion's poor shot selection. Michigan played with more heart and energy and shut down Illini over the last few minutes to take the lead. I think Illinois got frazzled near the end and committed way too many turnovers and took bad, hurried shots. Credit Michigan for pressuring them and taking it to them. Illini played more lacksadasical than usual especially Tisdale but also McCamey and Davis. As far as taking it strong to the hole, seems those three also got their shots blocked repeatedly. Frazier's energy couldn't do it all and his teammates didn't match him, not even close. Michigan played much better defense and pressured outside shooters while Illinois left Michigan 3-point shooters open left and right. Davis didn't play with the heart and defensive tenacity he showed against Purdue especially with Tisdale not even showing up.
