Fighting Illini Basketball Highlights

This just in: the freshmen are for real.

After having freshman guard Brandon Paul light up the Assembly Hall court to spark the Illini to two lopsided wins to start the season, it was fellow frosh guard DJ Richardson's turn on Saturday night.

The Peoria product poured in 15 points, including four three-pointers, to lead the Illini to a 94-48 romping of Presbyterian College.

There's no doubt about it, these Illini will be exciting to watch. The Big Ten is stacked this year, so grab a hold of your seats, put on a helmet, and get a ready for college basketball season.

And the best part? now offers video highlights, so see for yourself!
