Illini Men’s Basketball Turnaround
The last time that the University of Illinois men’s basketball team made it to the tournament was 2013.
Now they have a legitimate chance at making not just an appearance, but a solid showing.
Illinois’ win over Nebraska tied them with four other teams for the second-best record in the Big Ten conference. Penn State, Iowa, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Illinois all sit with a 10-6 conference record.
Playmakers like Ayo Dosunmu and Kofi Cockburn have had a strong impact on the program, and some are optimistic the incoming recruits can spearhead a new era in Illinois basketball.
