What happened last time?

March 14, 2021: Illinois 91, Ohio State 88

The business is starting to get finished.

For the first time in 16 years, the Illini have won the Big Ten tournament. The clincher? A classic: a 91-88 victory over No. 9 Ohio State in overtime to claim just the third conference tournament title in program history.

And, boy, was it a hard-fought game, that needed overtime to settle. To no surprise, the game was iced by a pair of Ayo Dosunmu free throws in OT.
