LIVE! Illinois hits road for first time this season, visiting Marquette in Gavitt Tipoff Games
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WCIA) — Illinois basketball takes the court tonight as a Top 10 team in the country. The Illini (2-0) moved up a spot in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 poll to No. 10. The top three teams remained the same in Gonzaga, UCLA and Kansas, while Michigan moved up two spots to No. 4 with Purdue at No. 8. Illinois is playing its first true road game with non-capacity fans since the 2019-2020 season, March 5th, 2020 at Ohio State. For guys like Andre Curbelo, Coleman Hawkins, Jacob Grandison and the freshmen, this is their first road game in that capacity with the Illini.
