Bradley Leeb-USA TODAY Sports

Let's play some basketball, maybe see a show after.

If you haven't read our preview of tonight's game yet you should probably correct your mistake right the hell now. However, I also understand that you might be lazy and clicking a link and then reading all those words might be too much work for you. If that's the case, long story short, tonight will be a nice test for the Illini.

UNLV has the kind of size we just haven't had to deal with yet, and this is also our first road game of the season. I'm more interested in seeing how the kiddies handle themselves in this environment than I am in the result, though obviously I'd like a positive result.

I mean, it'll be cool when we win a national championship this season, but an undefeated season would make it even cooler.
