Illinois beats up Arizona
on their way to another victory
University of Illinois men's basketball team faced yet another top-ranked
opponent in Chicago on Saturday, beating Arizona 81-73 in front of a
sold-out crowd at the house Michael Jordan built. Illinois had a very
balanced attack, as all five starters reached double figures in points,
and the bench contributed as well with 21 points. The victory moved
Illinois' record to 8-2 on the young season. Illinois continues to be
ranked fifth in the nation in both the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll and the
AP poll (national sportswriters).
