Illini Wonk
Tuesday, February 28, 2006
  There's no place like Williams Arena?
The Illini start a two-game road trip in Minneapolis playing the Minnesota Gophers at Williams Arena. Illinois has won their last five at Minnesota and the last 14 in the series overall.

Illinois easily handled the Gophers 77-53 on January 25 in Assembly Hall which completed an 0-6 start in conference play for Minnesota. Since then, the Gophers have gone 5-3 and appear to be a much better team than when Illinois faced them more than a month ago.

As John Supinie pointed out, the Illini's Big Ten and NCAA seeds are up for grabs. Win out and they're contenders for a #1 seed in the NCAA's. Lose their last two road games and you're looking at a possible 6 seed and a Thursday game in the Big Ten Tournament.
