Illinois (16-9, 10-6) and Northwestern (6-20, 1-15) are going to play basketball tonight.
The Illini are pretty good this year and are likely headed to their first NCAA Tournament since 2013. The Wildcats, on the other hand, are not very good. They haven’t won a game since January 11.
Should be a good one.
