With the win, the Illini join four other teams at 4-2 and in second place behind Wisconsin in the conference standings
. The win also gives Illinois a school record 32 straight victories at home. The Illini now have two days to rest before going for their 33rd straight win at Assembly Hall agsinst Purdue on Saturday.
Of the losing streak, 13 belong to Dan Monson who has never won against Illinois in his seven seasons at Minnesota. With the loss, the Gophers fall to 0-6 in the Big Ten and you have to wonder how much longer Monson can hold onto his job.
