Basketball Prospectus: Unfiltered Everything Else is Fluff.

Illinois is River Phoenix

Michigan State may struggle at “putting the ball in the basket,” but at least they’re able to, you know, put the ball in the basket on occasion. Illinois, conversely, scored 33 points in a 56-possession game last night, losing to Penn State 38-33 in Champaign.

Clocking in at just 0.59 points per trip, the Illini’s evening ranks, it need hardly be said, as the single most futile outing posted by any major-conference offense in league play this year. (Though Georgia‘s come close on three occasions and Maryland came really close with that performance at Duke.) To lose at home to a team that scores 38 points–there are no words.

Except perhaps these: Edvard Munch-level horror.
