What Happened The Last Time These Two Played?

Jan. 2, 2024: No. 9 Illinois 96, Northwestern 66

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — New year, same story.

In Illinois’ second game without Terrence Shannon Jr., the veterans stepped up in his absence again as the ninth-ranked Illini came out with a dominant 96-66 win over Northwestern at State Farm Center on Tuesday night to open the 2024 calendar.

Despite a very different opponent in Northwestern, this game followed the same formula as Illinois’ dominant win over FDU to close 2023: Everyone contributes.

The orange and blue spread out the rock against the Knights this past Friday, as six players finished in double digits for scoring. The performance Tuesday followed suit.

Four Illinois players put up double digit points, led by Marcus Domask who finished with a game-high 32 points and 6 assists.
