By-The-Numbers: Illinois

By-The-Numbers is back, and we needed all the time we could to get over that numerical nightmare known as Washington's 59-52 win over Eastern Washington Saturday. The abacus almost didn't have enough beads to account for Vernon Adams and his aerial assault on Husky Stadium, and now the Huskies welcome another gunslinger to town - Illinois' Wes Lunt - and he's got quite the resume.
