Illinois Shocks No. 1 Indiana On A Last-Second Layup

This is how you gain and then lose a No. 1 ranking in a span of five days. Illinois's Tyler Griffey's uncontested lay-up at the buzzer sealed a huge win over top-ranked Indiana, a game in which the Hoosiers were up 11 with 6:30 remaining.

It's Illinois's first upset of a No. 1 since 2004, and it came on a play that was ballsy and high-probability. The more motion on an inbounds, the better the chance a defender's going to get tangled up. Nothing fancy. The picket fence. A little bit of Hickory in Champaign.
