In the first of an ongoing series called “I Hit It To Win It” let’s relive Nick Anderson’s buzzer-beating three-pointer. Do you remember it? Indiana’s Jay Edwards also had a remarkable shot in the waning moments, too. BTN’s Jordan Cornette sits down with Anderson to relive that sequence.
That season Lou Henson was Illinois’ coach. Henson will be profiled on “Big Ten Icons” tonight. Henson guided the Illini to 11 NCAA Tournament appearances, including the 1989 Final Four and the 1984 Elite Eight.
