Frazier officially out for Illini

March, 18, 2009
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Illinois will face Western Kentucky on Thursday without floor leader Chester Frazier because the hand injury that knocked him out of the Big Ten tournament hasn't healed.

Frazier, a member of the All-Big Ten Defensive Team, hurt the hand in practice March 11.

Frazier's absence means a bigger role for senior Calvin Brock -- a 6-foot-5 wing who stepped into the starting lineup in the Big Ten tournament -- as well as sophomore guard Jeff Jordan.
