Pulse of Illini Nation: How can Illinois win the Big Ten Tournament?

We asked, and you answered!

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Illinois Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

The Big Ten Tournament gets going tomorrow in New York City, and while nobody wants the tourney at Madison Square Garden, fewer teams likely want to play No. 13 Illinois, a fairly dangerous team that may be prone to upset Iowa, Michigan or more.

As we are about to get underway, we wanted to find out what you guys think needs to happen for Illinois to win the tournament on Sunday and clinch a berth in the NCAA tournament, a pulse of Illini nation.

Here are some of the best responses.

Well, maybe everyone else doesn’t go to MSG?

Simply, five wins.

Including some upsets by other teams.

Low expectations —> surprises.

LeBron would help.

The ‘05 team?

Trent going off.

The FBI getting everyone...

.... except Rutgers.

Illinois gets tipped off against Iowa on Wednesday afternoon on BTN.
