What happened the last time these two played?

Dec. 29, 2018: FAU 73, Illinois 71

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — If you thought that was bad, it’s about to get a whole lot worse.

In a poor showing of the game of basketball, the Illini were upset by Florida Atlantic in overtime, 73-71, on Saturday afternoon at the State Farm Center. And now Illinois heads back into Big Ten play, where there won’t be any gimmes.

“Give a ton of credit to Florida Atlantic,” said Illinois Head Coach Brad Underwood. “They deserved to win this game. They were better coached, better prepared, and played much harder than we did.

Editor’s Note: Both these programs have changed drastically since 2018. This should be fun.
