AP Photos: Illinois @ Minnesota

AP Photographer Tom Olmscheid used his camera to give fans without the benefit of watching the game on TV an eye into the action. The five images IlliniBoard has include action shots from Deron Williams, Nick Smith, Kris Humphries, and Ben Johnson. There is also a picture with a look of bewilderment on Minnesota Head Coach Dan Monson's face as he wonders if he will ever beat Illinois.
