Illinois Fighting Illini
Trying to figure out what the Illinois Fighting Illini are right now is tough. They have had some big wins, like their win over Missouri, but it’s hard to know how that is going to translate into Big Ten play.
They come into this game 0-3 in Big Ten play, but they have played three tough teams in Minnesota, Maryland, and Northwestern.
In their last game against the Golden Gophers they got down big early, and they couldn’t climb themselves out a hole and that led to a 77-67 defeat.
To win this game they are going to need to get out a faster start. If they start out slow again in this game, they are going to have trouble having any sort of success.
On the other side of this match up is the Michigan Wolverines who have had a nice start to their season, and look like they will be a contender in the Big Ten this year.
For the Wolverines their strength is on the defensive end of the floor. They come into this game giving up only 61.1 points per game which is 10th in the NBA.
They need to try and lean on that defense again in this game, if they want to come out ahead.
