This was a great win but I don't think Illinois is as good as their ranking right now, I actually wouldn't be surprised if they finish outside the top 25 after playing the rest of their conference schedule. I'm not saying that as a result of this game either, I thought it before they played. That being said, it was still a tough road win and I think this Gopher team is for real.
I think the Gophers are a near impossible matchup from Illinois. They rely on open looks from deep, and the Gophers will not give them that. Illinois will be a tough beat in the big 10 this year, but I think this game proved that they'll struggle against defensively sound teams.
