Paul jumper lifts Illinois over Minnesota, 51-49
CHICAGO (AP) — If he has hit a bigger shot than this, Brandon Paul couldn't remember it. He'd have a hard time matching it.
Paul nailed a fadeaway jumper at the buzzer and finished with 25 points to lead Illinois to a 51-49 victory over Minnesota in the first round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday.
"I didn't want to lose. We worked too hard to get to this point," Paul said. "This team has so much character. My mindset was just to be aggressive. Coach told me to stay aggressive. I basically wanted to attack on offense and do other things. I'm more excited about I didn't turn the ball over today."
