Illinois Cruises Past UNLV To Advance To 3rd Round

In a Southwest region 8-9 matchup, the Fighting Illini of Illinois blew by the UNLV Runnin' Rebels and won 73-62 but the final score does not do justice for the dominating performance put on by the guys in orange. Not many picked the Illini but they cruised by the Rebels with such ease in an impressive performance by Bruce Weber's club. The reward for the Illini's first tournament win 2006? A showdown with the Kansas Jayhawks, who struggled for much of the game with the 16 seeded Boston Terriers, on Sunday (round 3 television schedule).
