To Be Announced

No. 22 Illinois goes for sweep of Big Ten rival Penn State

With four or five potential pros on its roster and perhaps a couple of future NBA All-Stars, No. 22 Illinois was expected to challenge for the Big Ten Conference title back in November and potentially make a deep NCAA Tournament run.

The Fighting Illini might still meet all of those lofty expectations, but they should probably consider playing with more urgency and toughness, beginning with Tuesday night's visit from conference rival Penn State.

After sitting on an upset loss to Maryland for six days before Saturday's late morning tip-off with No. 21 Ohio State, Illinois promptly fell behind 10-2 and 37-19 in the first half of an eventual 87-81 defeat in Champaign.
