    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Illinois Coach Bill Self: Since they stopped Brian [Cook] and [Robert Archibald] this opened up the perimeter for Frank [Williams] and Luther [Head]. Knocking them in was important because they are typically not good at shooting threes.

      • San Diego State Coach Steve Fisher: We were beaten by the best team we have played this season. I am bitterly disappointed of the way we lost, but we'll hug each other and know that we will be back. This won't take away from what we've accomplished this year.

      • San Diego State Forward Randy Holcomb: [Illinois'] size is a little different than what I am used to. Usually when I get on the court I am one of the bigger guys. Tonight I was a two-guard out there. They double-teamed me in the post and I couldn't make the outside shot. They defended me well.
