Joseph Bertrand Elevates

Illinois’s Joseph Bertrand showed off some acrobatics on Wednesday night against Georgia Tech, including the twisting shot in this video.

Bertrand finished with 15 points, one of four Illini players in double digits.

Big Ten Geeks: What's up with Wisconsin?

In the wake of Wisconsin’s lopsided loss at the hands of Florida, I urged caution. It was early. Florida is really good, and they were playing at home.
