The Illini went on to knockout #5 Michigan on their home court. 

It was all obviously unintentional but that didn't make the scene at the State Farm Center in Champaign last night any less scary.

After collecting a rebound and scoring a bucket the 7-foot, 290-pound Jamaican center enthusiastically pumped his fist right into the unexpecting officials head. The official would leave the game:

... but appeared to be fine after the game.

A huge win for the Illini who had their hearts ripped out by #3 Maryland just 4 days ago. Illinois goes for 2 in a row this Saturday in non-conference play when Old Dominion comes to town. You can catch all the action right here on 1440 WROK. Pregame is at 3, tipoff will be at 4.

I-L-L!
