The final two games of the regular season do matter. Even for an 11-win team. While playing on Wednesday of the Big Ten tournament might not be a terrible thing from a purely basketball standpoint (avoid the top two seeds), it comes with it a negative perception. Illinois might want to avoid that.

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.
