Illinois (16-5, 9-2 Big Ten) have won three straight heading into this matchup and is coming off an 80-67 home victory over Wisconsin on Wednesday. The Illini came out of halftime holding on to just a four-point lead but managed to gradually pull away down the stretch in the second half. Kofi Cockburn had another monster evening, accounting for 37 points and 12 rebounds.

Indiana (16-5, 7-4 Big Ten) is in action for the first time since last Saturday, where it picked up a 68-55 road victory at Maryland. The Hoosiers held the Terrapins to just 28.5% shooting for the contest and held control for a vast majority of it. Race Thompson put up 18 points and 12 rebounds in the win.
