What Happened The Last Time They Played?
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Brad Underwood had one message for the Illini faithful prior to Wednesday’s matchup between the Big Ten’s best — show up, weather be damned.
Imploring Illinois fans to mimic his trademark #EveryDayGuys, Underwood campaigned for a sold-out State Farm Center despite a less-than-cooperative Mother Nature. The No. 18 Illini needed every cheer, chant and chatter in a close battle with No. 11 Wisconsin, but Illinois came out on top 80-67. With the win, the Illini move back ahead of Michigan State and Wisconsin in the Big Ten standings with nine games to play.
