Back on our home floor against another struggling Big Ten team. Illinois has an injury excuse but nonetheless they are just 3-4 in the Big Ten after being a ranked team at one point earlier this season. KenPom has the Gophers as a 70% favorite to win this afternoon, which doesn't mean a whole lot but for whatever reason this may be a chance to get our second conference win.
Just looking to see this team improve from here till the end of the season. Start getting these guys to play on the same page on both ends of the floor. Hopefully an entertaining game.
