Jeff Huth's breakdown of Wednesday's 75-62 Illini win against Georgia Tech:
PLAYER OF THE GAME: Joseph Bertrand
Junior guard reeled off 10 straight points to lift Illinois into a 64-58 lead it would not relinquish. In 22 minutes off bench, Bertrand produced 15 points and three rebounds.
Georgia Tech B
Brandon Paul might be as deserving of Player of Game as Bertrand; senior racked up 15 points, seven assists and seven rebounds.
Georgia Tech C-
Another strong shooting game from Griffey (14 points), personally outscoring Georgia Tech’s frontcourt starters.
Georgia Tech A
Bertrand did the heavy for Illini reserves; GT outscored Illini’s bench 30-20.
Georgia Tech C
Illini keep finding a way to win, but when will more fans notice? Or at least show up at Assembly Hall? Lots of seats available on a night when 12,224 bought tickets.
