Why it mattered
After almost putting up a triple-double in the last game, Isaac Likele was rewarded with another start. He wasn’t nearly as effective in this one, shooting 2-of-8 and totaling just 5 points. Likelele added just two assists and five rebounds, while committing a turnover. The urgency that “Ice” played with in the last game was not present against Illinois. He needs to produce better if the Buckeyes stand a chance at winning, and tonight was not the best effort for Likelele.
