Quick analysis: Illinois 99, Evansville 60

WHAT HAPPENED

Illinois' season opener couldn't have gone much better. The Illini pressured Evansville into a slew of turnovers, and their transition offense led the way in a 39-point victory.

WHAT IT MEANS

For one night? All is well with the Illini. Their offense delivered up close and from three-point range, and their defense defined stingy.

WHAT'S NEXT

Illinois gets one more game before the brutal portion of its nonconference schedule begins. Up next? Georgetown and highlight reel dunker Mac McClung on Tuesday.
