    Mascot: Fighting Illini
    Shirt color not to wear: Orange

    Opposing player to watch:  Joseph Bertrand

    Last time against the Huskers Bertrand went crazy, running the same play over and over again down the middle of the paint for 25 points.  More than likely he won't be able to duplicate but who is the guy who is going to go off on the Huskers?

    This is getting ugly

    Given that both teams haven't won in February, it's not surprising that both coaches are showing up in national hot seat columns.  It would seem that the Illini have the advantage today as unlike the game in Champaign there is no Brian Jorge Diaz so there are going to be times where Meyers Leonard and the rest of the rest of the team destroy the Huskers in the paint.  However, if the Huskers can pack the paint against one of the wost 3 pt shooting teams in the league they might have a chance to pull out the upset.  Either way expect this one to be ugly in terms of shooting and scoring and let's throw a little motivation out there by picking Illinois.  Feel free to prove us wrong.

    Prediction:  Illinois 59 - Nebraska 54
