  Big game with Buckeyes
The Illini have a matchup with Ohio State in Columbus for sole posession of second place in the Big Ten standings. Iowa will remain in first place after beating a struggling Indiana in Bloomington.

"This will be as challenging for us defensively as anyone we've faced this year" said Bruce Weber. In this year's game it's Ohio State playing the "we don't get no respect" card. "A lot of times when (media) talk about the Big Ten, they kind of leave Ohio State out," guard Je’Kel Foster said yesterday. "This would be a good message to let everybody know Ohio State is for real." This game also matches Weber, the Big Ten's coach of the moment, against Matta, who has a bright future.

The Illini need the win to stay in the hunt for their third consecutive Big Ten title. The Buckeyes are thinking about the same thing and looking to protect their home court. Who wins? Tune in.
