Illini Wonk

  Regular season finale
This morning, CBS will broadcast Illinois' final regular season game against Michigan State in East Lansing. The Spartans will likely be without Matt Trannon which, as Big Ten Wonk points out, is worse for them than Trannon's stats would suggest.

As we all now know, Illinois' shot at a share of its third straight Big Ten title is a long shot at best. They would have to win today on the road and have Ohio State lose at home to last-place Purdue. Despite that, the Illini hold out hope. "We're goofy like that," said sophomore center Shaun Pruitt. "Anything can happen."

Perhaps a bit more realistic, Illinois coach Bruce Weber said: "The big thing we're going to play for is the (NCAA Tournament) seeding." Regardless of today's outcome, Dave Dye from the Detroit News says that Illinois is the Big Ten's best shot to get to the Final Four.
