Illini Men's Basketball schedule and gamewatches

There are many changes to Illini Basketball this season, and that is a good thing. New Head Coach Brad Underwood has a mostly new staff, and there are 10 new faces on the team that had never played a game in an Illini uniform. Join us for all the fun!

Coach Underwood was hired after he led Oklahoma State to the NCAA Tournament in his first year.  He has installed a new style to the offense that makes things more exciting, and will hopefully achieve better results.
