Malcolm Hill brings all the feels to emotional postgame interview on senior night

Illinois guard Malcolm Hill had quite a senior night, dropping 22 points and 4 assists on Michigan State as the Illini picked up another late-season, quality win to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive.

He also moved up to No. 4 on Illinois’ all-time scoring list with 1,759 career points.

After the game, Hill got teary when talking about his family during a Big Ten Network interview.

“Man, just it means a lot,” Hill said of his family’s support. “These last four years, they’ve done a lot for me. My family’s been here for me ever since day one. The fan support has been unbelievable. I’m just so proud, and I really appreciate the love I’ve been shown from Illini nation. I wouldn’t have done it without my family and friends and coaches.

Before leaving the court, Hill also knelt down to kiss the orange “I” at center court.

He’ll be remembered around the program as an all-time great.
