Illinois' Marcus Domask 1st in MCBB Since Ja Morant with March Madness Triple-Double

Illinois senior forward Marcus Domask made history during the team's 85-69 win over Morehead State in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday.

Domask recorded a triple-double by scoring 12 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and dishing out 10 assists in 36 minutes on the floor. Although he shot just 5-14 from the field, he connected on two of his four attempts from three-point range.

He became the first player to record a March Madness triple-double since Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant, as Morant achieved the feat during Murray State's win over Marquette in the opening round of the 2019 tournament.
