It seems like only yesterday that Taurean Prince and Royce O'Neale rained threes alongside a dominant defensive effort against Memphis because it was. And now we're back in action tonight against the Fighting Illini going for 6-0 and the championship of the Las Vegas Invitational. Here's the stats on the two teams courtesy of the pregame over at Statsheet.com:

Baylor:

Illinois:

Names to Know:

#24 SG/SF Rayvonte Rice -- 18 ppg, 7.4 rpg.
#11 G Aaron Cosby -- 13.4 ppg, 3.6 rpg
#21 G Malcolm Hill -- 13.6 ppg, 7.0 rpg

Looks like Illinois plays a guard-heavy lineup if the listings on Statsheet are true, though one of Rice or Hill could easily be a small forward in reality and just isn't listed as such.
