The long wait is over. After nearly a week the Illini return to the Assembly Hall floor looking to improve to 9-0 on the season.

#13 Illinois (8-0) vs. Western Carolina (3-5)

Time: 7pm Central
Line: Illini -18
Over/Under: 141

Western Carolina is off to a slow start to the season, but this is a team that returned most of the starters from last year's squad. One that went to double-overtime against Davidson and lost 93-91 in the Southern Conference title game. So I wouldn't take them for granted.

Still, a blowout would be nice.
