Illinois won't be going to the Big Dance this season, but does have a date in the NIT.

The Fighting Illini earned a #2 seed and will travel to Boston University on Wednesday night.  The Illini can't play at home due to renovations at the State Farm Center.

Game time is 6pm.


The state of Illinois won't be represented in this year's NCAA Tournament.

No teams from Illinois landed a spot in the field of 68 teams.  Illinois is joined by neighboring state Indiana having no teams in the Big Dance.  However, the Big 10 Conference landed six teams in the tournament.
