Illini sharpshooters catch a cold spell

Champaign, IL (The Daily Illini) -- The Illini began the year scorching the net. They led the Big Ten in field-goal percentage for most of the season but have dropped to second behind Ohio State at 47.2 percent after recent struggles from the field.

While much of the team has had difficulty, the team's best shooters, Trent Meacham and Alex Legion, have the worst case of the cold touch.

Meacham has shot 7-of-33 in the last six games. The team's leading 3-point shooter for players with more than 20 attempts (41.9 percent), the senior guard has made only four of his last 25 attempts from beyond the arc. Meacham, who averages 10.4 points per game, hasn't scored more than seven points in the last five games.
