The Victory Formation:
The top-ranked Indiana Hoosiers were hoping to get one last stop in regulation and force overtime in Champaign, and Christian Watford was positive that Tyler Griffey of the Illini wasn’t getting the ball. Why else would you leave your man wide open while the best shooter is actually inbounding the ball from the corner? Oh, this is why you don’t. Being #1 in the nation doesn’t last long this year, and it appears we are set to see a new team at the top spot for the 6th straight week when the new rankings come out next week. Michigan, who gave up to Indiana this past week, is most likely to get it back, with Florida and the Hoosiers losing this past week. As for the Illini, the win is obviously a huge gain on their tournament resume after struggling in conference play over the last month. It was only their 4th win in their last 12 games, since beginning the season 12-0 and being ranked as high as #10 in the country

The senior lost his shooting touch and then his starting job as the Illini, once ranked No. 10 in the country, turned a 12-0 start to the season into a flop that saw them fall toward the bottom of the Big Ten standings.
With less than a second left on the clock Thursday night, though, Griffey...
