After dropping a weekend game to Oregon at the United Center, The Illinois Fighting Illini return to Champaign on Wednesday to face the Hampton Pirates. Illinois currently boasts a 34-game homecourt winning streak against non-conference opponents--this is the nation's third longest active streak.
Despite the recent struggles for the Illini, this contest should be a relatively easy win in addition to a nice tune-up prior to the annual Braggin' Rights game on Saturday against the Missouri Tigers.

Live Video Stream: ESPN will have a live stream available via WatchESPN.com
