This year’s men’s basketball team is not afraid to shoot against the zone, as the Illini showed in finishing 11 for 26 from beyond the arc in a 94-48 win against Presbyterian College on Saturday.
“We told the players ahead of time this was a young team we were going up against” head coach Bruce Weber said.
Presbyterian College (0-3) is one of the youngest teams in the nation. Choosing to redshirt three juniors this season, the Blue Hose fielded a roster of one redshirt-junior, two sophomores and five freshmen.
Throughout the entire game, Illinois’ quick ball movement was too much for its opponent.
