CHICAGO — The Illini men’s basketball team was eliminated from the Big Ten tournament Thursday afternoon.
Illinois dropped its first-round game 73-55 to Michigan at the United Center.
The Illinois men’s basketball team will be playing in the NIT starting on Wednesday. I went to the Big Ten Tournament this weekend, and I went to media availability on Sunday night following the team’s selection to the tournament. I also went to practice on Tuesday to get more quotes for my story.
