Illinois' Big Ten Tournament Scenarios

New, 1 comment

Things are a lot easier to figure out after Saturday's games.

While tomorrow's regular season finale won't have much say in whether or not the Illini make the NCAA Tournament there is still something at stake for the Illini.

With Minnesota losing to Purdue and Iowa beating Nebraska on Saturday the picture is a lot clearer.

Quite simply, a win over Ohio State would give the Illini a much easier first round matchup in the Big Ten Tournament.

If the Illini beat Ohio State on Sunday they will be the #7 seed and playing Nebraska.

If the Illini lose to Ohio State they'll be the #8 seed and have to play Minnesota.

Who would you rather play?

Exactly.
