There may be four freshmen on the Illinois basketball team, but guards D.J. Richardson and Brandon Paul have stolen much of the spotlight early in the season. That wasn’t the case in East Lansing, Mich., on Saturday, though, as Illinois (12-6, 4-1 Big Ten) fell 73-63 to No. 7 Michigan State (15-3, 5-0).

Illinois head coach Bruce Weber recognized the freshman’s 12-point, seven-rebound performance after the game.
