Groce, teammates praise freshman

CHAMPAIGN — The efficient offense Illinois showed off Wednesday against Michigan? The 21 assists on 34 made shots and 64 percent shooting for the game?

Look no further than Te’Jon Lucas.

Yes, Jalen Coleman-Lands had four assists in his continued development into more than just a three-point threat. And, yes, Maverick Morgan chipped in four more assists out of the low post.
