LIVE pre-game report from Indiana

WCIA 3's Bret Beherns from Assembly Hall as Illini look for season sweep

BLOOMINGTON, IN (WCIA) -- The Illini could certainly use help from Michael Finke tonight who we need a status on.

Greg Eboigbodin got his first start against Penn State on Sunday. He did not score and fouled out in 21 minutes. 

Illinois is still looking for their first road win of the season. They're 0-8 away from the State Farm Center. It won't be an easy task tonight at Assembly Hall. Illinois hasn't won in this building since 2010.

Their last two games at Indiana have been losses by an average of 25 points per game. But despite the adversity, both this season and in the past, Illinois head coach Brad Underwood said he's optimisitc about the future and finishing out the season on a positive note.


"That belief keeps with me and I know if we can run offense a little better," Underwood said. "I know if we can keep Leron and Kipper out of foul trouble and man, anything can happen. I'm a believer in that and I'm a believer in our locker room and our guys, and if they can keep believing and why not? Who says we can't? And don't tell me we can't because we're going to do everything we can to prove you wrong."

Indiana comes in as the nine-point favorite. The Illini haven't beat the Hoosiers twice in one season since 2013-14.

Watch the game on the Big Ten Network starting at 7:30 p.m.
