I think it is safe to assume most of you saw how the Missouri – Illinois game played out. A 6 point possession thanks to a Mike Tisdale intentional foul turned a one point deficit into a seven point deficit.
I want to take a look at the inbounds play that Missouri ran after the intentional foul was called. It was a nicely designed play which Illinois defended well but the awareness of Marcus Denmon gave the Tigers a basket.
Leading by only 4 at the half, Illinois came out in the second half and fired off a barrage of long distance shots that eventually sunk the Bulldogs. Three of those makes came from 7 footer Mike Tisdale, two of which came off of the same action that Gonzaga had trouble defending.
