QUOTE
“I went out in pregame warm-ups just to watch him, and I never go out in pregame warm-ups. His balls don’t hit
the rim. I’m fascinated with guys who can make baskets. I sat out there and watched him at the free throw line hit about 19 [jump shots] in a row and I don’t think any of them hit the rim.”
-Illinois head coach Brad Underwood
