Maryland has to play Rutgers on Tuesday. The extra 2 days rest should be a big advantage for us, especially considering how physical the game was we just played and how phsyical Rutgers plays.

We also get an extra days rest over MSU next week.

I've watched MD games and I'm really not scared of them.

Looks like another tough battle to me. Pretty clear that making 3 or 4 turnovers, or 2 or 3 quick 3's can mean the difference in Big 10 games

If I remember right, we lost our first game in January, then won the rest. Let's do the same thing in February. I'll also be OK with doing it again it in March, but will want to do better in April.

So pumped I’ll get to show my girlfriend a sold out State Farm Center for the first time!! I’m looking for us to come out MAD after a week of great practices. Conference champions bounce back. ;)

Illinois 71
Maryland 62

Extra days off at this juncture of the B1G schedule is not a bad thing, this whole league is physical, a man's league. May hurt us again come March though, usually the B1G defensive pressure/physicality doesn't always play well with refs in NCAA tourney.

Probably our easiest game in the next four and it’s against a team in the top 15. Wild.

The numbers have faith in the Illini !!!!!!

So do we need to have faith.

Gotta hope Maryland beats Rutgers on Tuesday while going through a very tough and physical game so they're a bit tired on Friday. I expect a win, probably close like 65-62.
