Illinois adds primetime matchup with UT-Martin

The Illini’s schedule is done.

NCAA Basketball: Chicago State at Illinois Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

Illinois finalized its 2020-21 schedule Tuesday afternoon by announcing a Saturday night matchup with UT-Martin.

We had known the Illini were trying to schedule a non-conference opponent for Dec. 5, and now we know it will be the Skyhawks.

UT-Martin opens its season Wednesday night against Evansville. It should be a cakewalk for the Illini, with the Skyhawks finishing 9-20 (5-13 Ohio Valley) a season ago.

Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. The game will air on BTN.
