Last year the Illini men's NCAA basketball team had a lousy season and then really started to get it together at the Big Ten tournament, until falling in the championship game.
This year, even though they are unranked, they have done well this season, including a win against #9 Purdue.
But it is always sweet to whip up on Indiana, and we beat them by THIRTY ONE points. Indiana basketball vs. Illini basketball is like the Bears vs. the Packers, a hated rivalry.
Hope we kill them again next meeting.
This is nothing against Indiana per se home of Gerry... just IU basketball and the never ending war w/Illinois (unfortunately we usually get the worst of it).
