In case you missed it, Illinois somehow pulled off an incredible win Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, as the Illini ended No. 2 Texas’ undefeated season.
And it’s safe to say Twitter loved it. Here’s the best reactions from the win.
Illinois is so hard to prepare for because it has so many different people who can be the assassin.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) December 7, 2022
Tonight, Matthew Mayer started things, but Terrence Shannon Jr. finished. https://t.co/IgENPjTZer
This @IlliniMBB team is only going to keep getting better and better— Matt LaCosse (@Mattylac11) December 7, 2022
Matt was great early. Terrence & Jayden were great late….but Sencire provided so much juice during that brutal offensive stretch.— Mike LaTulip (@LaTulip_Mike) December 7, 2022
Played his ass off and helped this team stay within striking distance. Contributions all around.
Illinois finished with six more turnovers than assists and still beat the No. 2 team in the country at a neutral site. Imagine what they could do if they play well.— Tom Fornelli (@TomFornelli) December 7, 2022
