Paul not only scored well over half of Illinois' output in the 79-74 win last week. He also had eight rebounds and four blocks and was 13-15 from the free-throw line after a sluggish start.

Weber said Tuesday that Paul needs to start games with the urgency he showed late against the Buckeyes.

Weber also said injured point guard Sam Maniscalco should return and play up to 15 minutes versus Penn State on Thursday.
