Team’s lack of fire draws Groce’s ire
MADISON, Wis. – It will take a studious examination of the game film against Wisconsin to locate even two Illinois players who competed with the fierceness coach John Groce demands, he said.
After praising seldom used reserve Mike Shaw's effort, Groce had little else positive to say about the way Illinois face-planted on the Kohl Center court Saturday with a 74-51 loss to the Badgers.
The loss was a fourth in six games for the Illini (14-4, 1-3 Big Ten), but this one irked the coach enough for him to reevaluate every player in terms of toughness and consider lineup changes.
