CHAMPAIGN (WCIA) — The latest from Illini Athletics on January 13th, 2018, including highlights from track and field at the Illini Open.
The Illini men won the meet with 207 points. The women came in 2nd, behind Southern Illinois.
The Illinois men’s basketball team is preparing for Nebraska. Head coach Brad Underwood said recently, he’s not sure if the Illini right now have the right mentality.
“I think we all want to win. I think our locker room has a bunch of guys that want to win. I just don’t know yet it we expect to win. And there’s a big difference,” Underwood explained. “And expectation is swagger, it’s confidence, maybe both of them are lacking. I don’t want to speak for them, I don’t. But I think the one thing that is, it’s conference play no matter what league you’re in, at what level. Nothing is given, everything is earned, and you’ve got to go get it.”
Illinois travels to Nebraska on Monday.
