Illinois is not a very good team but is the type to give ND fits

Athletic team that pushes the ball and has the ability to rebound well. On the other hand they are inconsistent and known to have scoring lapses. The Irish have to control their Freshman, Dosunmu, and play with grit. Frazier is their best player and will get his points. Need to slow down the remaining players. They have a good big man but he's known to get into foul trouble. Not a good free throw shooting team but get to the line a lot. Additionally this is their first true road game.

I'd say if ND can handle their pressure the game will be up for grabs in the last minutes. As I mentioned free throws at the end of the game might be our saving grace.
