About This Play/Drill

This play run by the Illini in their game against Indiana caught the defense completely off guard as even Dan Dakich from ESPN predicted they should throw the ball inside to Egwu

The Illini use a great ball reversal off a pin down screen to get a solid backscreen set on x3 taking him out of the play as Bertrand cuts to the ring and makes a spectacular reverse dunk on x1 Ferrell who was late in help and caught between his man and the cutting Bertrand
