Jeez. What a game. Talk about up and down. Talk about punch up, knock down, drag out. Talk about a game of runs. We open with a 6-0 run. They answer with a 9-0 run. We build a 28-14 lead. They go on a 19-7 run to close the half down 35-33, then open the second half with a 10-2 run to go up 43-37. Illinois stretches their lead to 12 midway through the second half, but foul trouble haunts them, and puts UW in the double-bonus the rest of the way. And despite missing several free throws, we pull it out with solid defense, and a 10-2 run of our own, to win 67-64.
And to top it off, the UW women win, too. I'm in heaven:
