#2 Wisconsin 53 – #6 Illinois 41

This may have been one of the uglier games that I have seen. Neither team was setting the world on fire. For most of the first half most of Wisconsin’s points were being scored by Alando Tucker,and Illinois was getting its share from Warren Carter. They were fighting their own one on one battle. In the second half some of the other players decided to step up and contribute, but they were still both relied upon heavily. Carter ended up with 14 for the game. The Big Ten Player of the Year Tucker ended up with 21 points. He used the double teams on him, and found the open man most of the second half. He is a very impressive player to watch. Another player that was fun to watch today was Marcus Landry. Carl’s younger brother is a very good role player on this Wisconsin team. He finished the game with 8 points and 4 rebounds. He is only a sophomore, and it will be fun to see how he compares to his brother as his career progresses.
