GameThread: Illinois vs. Valparaiso

Bradley Leeb-USA TODAY Sports

You can actually watch this game on TV unless you're too poor to afford cable.

Loading Scores

For the first time this season the Illini will be on television tonight, as this game at The Farm is being broadcast on the Big Ten Network. Which means it could possibly be the first time you've actually gotten a chance to see this team.

I know I'm excited to finally be able to watch a basketball game without having to worry about buffering, but I figure that just means my cable will go out five minutes before the game starts.

Anyway, as I wrote earlier today, tonight's game could pose an interesting matchup for the Illini, and things could get scary. Whatever happens, let's all talk about it in the comments below. Together. Like one big ol' happy family.
