Prediction – Illinois +350
The Fighting Illini come into Indianapolis, winners of their previous three games, and riding a nice hot streak. They are 40th in the country on offense, while being able to attack the glass and rank 25th in total rebounds a game thanks to Kofi Cockburn. One of the main points I like to look at is three point shooting in the postseason, and the Illini are 24th in the country with 9.3 3 Pointers Made/ Game. On defense the Illini only give up a 45.3% opponent two point FG% which is good for 20th in the country. This mix of three point shooting and defense is a recipe for success and why I think the Illini can win the Big Ten tournament.
