Tip-off is minutes away. Here are the starters for both teams: Illinois — Mike Davis, Mike Tisdale, Demetri McCamey, Trent Meacham, Calvin Brock. WKU — Pettigrew, Evans, Kerusch, Slaughter, Mendez-Valdez.
WKU will have to run from the get-go, because Illinois’ pace will likely be the deciding factor.
Here we go! I’ll have more at halftime.
