INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (NEXSTAR) — The madness of March is now just days away. The college basketball season has entered the final stretch of the regular season before conference tournaments begin in two weeks.

Illinois basketball assures itself a winning Big Ten record for the first time in a decade after taking down Northwestern 74-66 in Evanston Thursday night. Alan Griffin powered the Illini (19-9, 11-6 B1G) with a career high 24 points, Ayo Dosunmu added 21 and Kofi Cockburn netted his program freshman best 12th double-double of the year in the win.

WCIA 3 Sports Director Bret Behrens reports on the victory, joining several other reporters from around the conference on Big Time Basketball.

Meanwhile, Chris Hagan will take fans on a tour of the Big Ten in this week’s edition of Big Time Basketball.
