Illini Face Another Tough Game at HomeThe Fighting Illini have a tough challenge ahead tonight
when eighth-ranked Minnesota comes to Champaign. After a dominating win against
Ohio State on Saturday, a game in which first-year head coach John Groce’s
squad never trailed, it would be understandable if Illinois struggled to get up
for this game. But if the Illini are going to compete for a conference title, a
win tonight is not only necessary, but it will put more distance between the
team out on the court in the future and the team that lost to Purdue in last
year’s Big Ten opener. Catch tonight’s Big Ten battle from Assembly Hall on
100.1 FM WJBD with pre-game at 7:30 and tip-off at 8pm.
