  • # 1 ranked Illinois vs the Golden Gophers Saturday NCAA Mens BBall

    Illinois opens up as a 17.0 favorite at home vs Minny

    This Illinois team keeps achieving new heights every week, knocking off Wisky at home was huge ending a 38 game home winning streak and extending Illinois record to 20-0

    Some people will look at this game as a possible trap, coming off a huge win vs Wisky and Michigan State coming up at the breslin center on tuesday. Is it possible they are looking ahead to MSU....

    Coach Weber is well aware of this game and the next game, telling the young Illini team to stay focused on Saturday....He also has said that MSU matches up better against this illini team than Wisky does (which is very true).

    But at home the Illini are hard to beat......A record of 61-2 last 4 years at assembly hall...

    Illinois is celebrating CENTENNIAL YEAR which brings the all time greats of Illini basketball back to watch the game and talk with the team...This is exactly what this young Illinois team needs to feel and be a part of....This will go a long way adding energy for this team in the game...You can bet this Illinois team will not embarass itself in front of the all the great players who ever played at Illinois on Saturday...

    The Illini will be wearing Orange Throw back Jerseys styled after the 1988-89 uniforms of the Flyin Illini (Who all will be in attendance watching)

    Illinois at home against the Minnesota on any day in any month.
    Illinois was 5-0-0 SU and 5-0-0 ATS in these games.
