Illinois G D.J. Richardson leads the judicial attack of the Illini's youth parliament. He will assess both hempispheres of Missouri's hive mind, disrupting the concentration response and setting off symbolic illegal fireworks in their collective danger radar.
Despite this, Illinois will not be able to force turnovers, thanks to Tigers' senior wizard G Marcus Denmon, who has been hoarding the ball like an acorn in the wintertime, much like the squirrely man he has proven to be. These habitat management practices will prepare them for a rather warm winter, with all due respect.
Unfortunately, the corrupt statisticians polluting the sidelines will be sure to make many "innocent" scoring errors, leading Missouri to an easy victory.
BOOK IT: Missouri 80, Illinois 68
