If Illinois wins they would likely face Big Ten rival Nebraska in the next round, but first they have to get past a Top 10 Portland Pilots team that head coach Janet Rayfield says will be the most patient team they have faced all year.
"It's a team that really is a possession-oriented team," Rayfield said. "They don't take a lot of shots, but they are really good at creating great opportunities. I think they are one of those teams that wear you down. Like on the football field, if the offense has the ball for a long time, they wear down the defense. They do that."
