Game 16: Michigan at Illinois Preview

Michigan heads on the road tonight the first time of the 2019 calendar year. The Wolverines will be looking to knock off Illinois (8:00 p.m., FS1) and keep pace with Michigan State at the top of the conference standings.

Illinois is just 4-11 (0-4 Big Ten) on the season, but has played the 5th most difficult schedule in country. Seven of Illinois’ 11 losses have been by single digits and only one — at home against Florida Atlantic — was against a team outside KenPom’s top 100.

This Illinois team isn’t great, but it hasn’t even played a true home game in conference play and its 4-11 record doesn’t do it justice.
