Which bench player looked best vs Illinois?

I thought Ross looked like a true 1st teamer vs JV in the time he got (probably because he is). We know he can shoot but looked good driving as well. The other night an announcer said even Mr. Defense himself, Bobby Knight, kept subpar defenders in the game if they were a true scoring threat. I think we stand to gain more switching/subbing out Smith for more offense (Ross) especially when it looks to be one of those games when we can't get the offense going. Look at the other top teams lucky enough to have multiple McDonald's All-Americans on the bench, they seem to get thrown in the fire and are given more chances to develop in their freshman year.
