The quarterfinals of the NIT continue on Wednesday.
The first game of the night is kind of a unique situation. Illinois is the higher seed in this game, but their arena is already filled with something else Wednesday night, so the UCF Golden Knights will be the away team in their home arena.
UCF Golden Knights
The UCF Golden Knights really had to fight to get to this game.
In their game against Illinois State their was a few questionable calls that went their way down the stretch to help them get a victory.
The Golden Knights strength is on the defensive side of the floor. They only give up 61.1 points per game and opponents shoot 36.4 percent from the field.
The Fighting Illini can score a lot of points a hurry so they need to try and slow them down on that side of the floor.
Illinois Fighting Illini
The Illinois Fighting Illini are going through a lot of changes off the court, but they haven’t let that get to them on the court.
Brad Underwood was introduced as the new head coach on Monday before their game against Boise State.
But the old staff is still the team coaching them, and they are really responding to them. To win this game they need to try and push the pace in this game.
If they are able to do that, they can win this game.
