Tonight's game could help the Tigers make a move into the collective national basketball consciousness, as this will the fourth nationally televised game of this young season. This is another game with March implications. The Illini are a strong team, despite having lost their past two games. I think some of the Illini fanbase is down on the team, but they are a work in progress.
Illinois coach Bruce Weber obviously respects the Tigers, but knows his team is capable of winning. It will be up to the offense and defensive adjustments tonight.
And hopefully, the flu/sickness/whatever has made it through the team already, so everyone will be 100%.
