2/25/2018@ WISCONSIN              
ILLINOIS: Last season: 20-15 overall, 8-10 in the Big Ten.
Who's gone: G Malcolm Hill, G Tracy Abrams, G Jalen-Coleman Lands (transfer), G D.J. Williams (transfer), G Jaylon Tate, G Alex Austin C Maverick Morgan, C Mike Thorne Jr.
Who's back: G Te'Jon Lucas. Last season, the sophomore was fifth in the Big Ten in turnover ratio during conference games. F Michael Finke. He shot 44.9 percent from behind the arc during conference play, ranking him eighth in the Big Ten. F Leron Black. Black had elbow surgery during the preseason, but is expected to be healthy for the season opener. He led the team in rebounding at 6.3 per game. F. Kipper Nichols. After sitting out the fall due to NCAA transfer rules, he appeared in 21 games for the Illini. He averaged 5.3 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in Big Ten play.
Who's new: G Mark Smith. Smith was named the 2017 Mr. Basketball of Illinois after leading Edwardsville to a 30-2 record. G Trent Frazier. Frazier is a consensus four-star recruit from Florida. He averaged just over 27 points per game during his senior season. G. Da'Monte Williams. Williams played just three seasons during his senior year of high school due to an ACL tear. However, he did average 25.6 points per game for Peoria Manual. G Mark Alstork.
The Skinny: In Underwood's first season, the Illini have the chance to make it to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five years. In his four years at Stephen F. Austin and Oklahoma State, Underwood never missed the tournament. In one year at Oklahoma State, Underwood showed that he can put together one of the best offenses in the country. If he can do the same at Illinois, Illini fans could finally enjoy a meaningful postseason appearance.
MICHIGAN ST: Last season: 20-15, lost to Kansas in NCAA round of 32.
Who's gone: G Eron Harris, G Alvin Ellis, F Matt Van Dyk.
Who's back: Four of the top five and eight of the top 10 scorers from last season. F Miles Bridges turned down a chance to be an NBA lottery pick to return for his sophomore season. Bridges is the Big Ten preseason player of the year and a national player of the year candidate. F Nick Ward averaged nearly 14 points and six-plus rebounds as a freshman, trailing only Bridges on the team. Ward joined Bridges on the preseason All-Big Ten team.
Who's new: F Jaren Jackson and F Xavier Tillman are talented enough as freshmen to be key players on a loaded team. The 6-11, 242-pound Jackson is projected by some as top-five pick in the 2018 NBA draft. Izzo said the 6-8, 260-pound Tillman was the biggest surprise in early practices.
The Skinny: Izzo, a Hall of Fame coach, has a good shot to win his second national championship, reach his eighth Final Four and win his first Big Ten regular season title since 2012.
No. 2 Michigan State looks to solidfy standing for Big Ten title

Michigan State got the help it needed. The second-ranked Spartans now control their own destiny in the Big Ten regular-season race.

All they must do is close the deal in their remaining two games to win the title outright.

The first of those games comes Tuesday in the home finale against Illinois.

The Spartans, who play at Wisconsin on Sunday, trailed Ohio State and Purdue in the standings 10 days ago. But the Buckeyes lost their last two games while the Boilermakers endured a three-game losing streak, including a stumble in East Lansing.

Michigan State (26-3 overall, 14-2 Big Ten) carries a 10-game winning streak into their matchup against the struggling Illini but needed a historic rally at Northwestern on Saturday. They trailed by 27 late in the first half but held the Wildcats to 11 second-half points in a 65-60 win, the biggest comeback in Big Ten history.

"I'm ecstatic by the comeback and I'm ecstatic by the fact that we showed some character," coach Tom Izzo said during the postgame press conference. "They were shaken a little bit. They haven't gone through that before. Nobody at Michigan State has ever been down 27 and come back and won, so I can't expect those guys to."

Point guard Cassius Winston was the catalyst, sparking a run of 24 unanswered points and finishing with 17 points, a career-high nine rebounds and seven assists.

"I've always known Cassius was big-time," sophomore forward Miles Bridges told the Detroit News. "He shows up when we need him. Going down the stretch we always get the ball to him."

Other than a 30-point blowout of undermanned Minnesota, Michigan State has needed clutch plays down the stretch to keep the streak alive. The last six victories besides the outing against the Gophers were decided by an average of 4.7 points.

Illinois (13-15, 3-12) has won just three of its last 13 games. One of those victories was Sunday, when it edged Nebraska 72-66 behind junior forward Leron Black's career-high 28 points. That avenged an earlier one-point loss to the Cornhuskers.

"Huge night for Leron," Illinois coach Brad Underwood said. "That was our game plan going into this, to really try to exploit and get him the ball, get him a lot of touches. Everybody got to see how Leron's game has expanded."

Black is averaging 22 points during the last three games.

"Just feeling the same as I always do," he said. "I was able to knock down some threes and that's what really got me going. My teammates were finding me in all the right spots and I was able to knock down a lot of open shots."

Black scored 12 points and fouled out the first time the Illini met Michigan State this season. Bridges poured in 31 points in an 87-74 Spartans victory on Jan. 22. Michigan State overcame 25 turnovers by shooting 68.2 percent from the field.

"We had the most turnovers in a decade and our best field goal percentage in a long time," Izzo said after the first meeting. "I know it doesn't add up, but somehow it did for us."
