Early blitz pushes women past SIU

CARBONDALE — Southern Illinois coach Cindy Stein called her third timeout of the first half with just more than seven minutes still to play before halftime.

At that point, the Illini led 35-9, and senior guard Ivory Crawford and freshman center Chatrice White were outscoring the Salukis by themselves. Stein’s third timeout was another attempt to slow down Illinois even just a little.

WBB: Three-pointers on mark

CHAMPAIGN — Illinois snapped its streak of woeful three-point shooting games last week at the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands, including a 10-of-23 performance in its overtime loss to Oklahoma.

The State Farm Center crowd, however, hadn’t seen much in the way of successful three-point shooting from the Illini this season.

Until Wednesday night.

WBB: Tuck, other bench players deliver

CHAMPAIGN — Illinois has relied heavily on its starting five throughout the first month of the season.

That reliance is due partly to the fact the first five are the Illini’s best players and coach Matt Bollant wants them on the floor together as much as possible.
