Alone in Second

That's where the Illini stand in the conference after holding on to beat Wisconsin Saturday. The 64-57 victory wasn't perfect, but it was a big win.


Wisconsin played hard, but the Illini managed to hold on, even when the momentum started to turn in the final minutes. The Illini continued to be out-rebounded, and they had more turnovers than necessary.

But the Illini stand alone in second place in the Big Ten at the moment. And given the craziness of the season thus far, that's worth noting. Yes, there is a long way to go, but these Illini are on track to exceed expectations.

Next up: Tubby and the Golden Gophers at The Barn. Go Illini!
