Feb. 20 Illinois basketball chat

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 - 12:30pm

The argument can be made Illinois is currently the hottest team in the Big Ten, although Monday's game at Wisconsin has the potential — given the Badgers' track record of late against the Illini — to squelch that fire. Still, Brad Underwood's second team is surging at the right time of the season with just five games left in the regular season after Monday's showdown with the Badgers.

Illinois has won three straight games (and four of its last five), and the Illini have done so by playing their best basketball of the season. Those wins, though, all came at home. Three of Illinois' next four games are on the road, including Thursday at Ohio State. Can the Illini keep their winning ways going? Who's next to have a breakout performance?

Feb. 1 Illinois basketball chat

Friday, February 1, 2019 - 3:30pm

This week's chat will happen as long as our beat writer doesn't turn into a human popsicle in Minneapolis. Wednesday's game (and travel), though, means pushing back the weekly Q&A with Scott Richey to 4 p.m. Friday. That game is an important one for Illinois. Can the Illini build off the momentum of a big win this time?

Jan. 23 Illinois basketball chat

Wednesday, January 23, 2019 - 12:30pm

Illinois played its best, most complete game of the season in beating Minnesota by 27 at State Farm Center last week. Then the Illini followed that up by losing by 24 at Iowa just four days later. A staggering run of highs and lows for the Illinois fan base. The Illini will be back in action at 8 p.m. Wednesday against Wisconsin.
