CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The Illini hit the road again for the second round of the NIT Sunday (10:00 a.m.) at Clemson, and the players told reporters on Friday they feel fortunate to still be playing after falling behind by 17 at Boston.  The Illini somehow dug themselves out of that hole and survived to play another day.
