What to Know
The #21 Illinois Fighting Illini have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Purdue Boilermakers at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Mackey Arena. The Fighting Illini have insisted on making their last three contests complete nail-biters, turning in a record of 2-1 during that stretch of close contests.
It was a close one, but on Saturday Illinois sidestepped the Northwestern Wildcats for a 75-71 victory. Illinois can attribute much of their success to G Trent Frazier, who had 16 points along with five rebounds, and G Ayo Dosunmu, who had 15 points and six assists.
Meanwhile, Purdue came up short against the Maryland Terrapins on Saturday, falling 57-50. The top scorer for Purdue was G Nojel Eastern (14 points).
Illinois isn't expected to pull this one out (Purdue is favored by 5.5), but if it comes down to a funny bounce or two, they might get lucky. Those sticking with the Fighting Illini against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past two games.
Illinois' win lifted them to 13-5 while Purdue's defeat dropped them down to 10-8. We'll see if the Fighting Illini can repeat their recent success or if the Boilermakers bounce back and reverse their fortune.
