A couple of things stand out immediately.
One – Penn State’s defensive FG effectiveness is atrocious. They are just going to have to find a way to play better defense to have any chance at all. You can’t let an opponent shoot the equivalent of almost 60% against you and expect to have any chance of winning.
Two – Illinois puts their opponents on the free throw line. To win, we’ll need to take advantage of that by making free throws – something we yet to show that we can do (other than in the Michigan State game).
