Chicago hope? Illini hope to end city slump

Illinois (12-1) has seven players on its roster from the Chicagoland area. The visit to the United Center provides an opportunity for friends and family to make a short trip to catch a game.

"Half our team is from Chicago plus a couple of guys, myself, from the suburbs, so we'll have a lot of people out there watching us," said Brandon Paul, a product of north suburban Gurnee.

But recent history hasn't been kind to the Illini. Paul and his senior teammates have lost three straight in the building: in overtime to Gonzaga in 2010, to Illinois-Chicago in '10 and to UNLV last year.
