Rayvonte Rice had a huge night and led the way for the Illini,
pouring in 28 points.
The Illini were supposed to host that game
and virtually all games in their pod (the higher No. 1 seed had
already been eliminated) but are not able to because the State Farm
Center is under heavy renovation.
The LDN crew was not able to be on hand for this one because of
everything going on around here. However, former Lincoln resident
Josh Winans served as our East Coast correspondent and sent back a
photo. Way to get the big "W," Josh!
