CHAMPAIGN -- The Illinois basketball team will play it's first road game of the season Tuesday night at UNLV.  It will be a big test for a young team playing it's first game away from home.  It will be a new kind of adversity they haven't seen yet this year, and they will be leaning on their upperclassmen to lead the way.

"I tell them to just be positive, and not worry about anything - just play together," said junior Tracy Abrams.  "Play together and help each other out.  We should be fine.  Those guys do a pretty good job of that, so us older guys have to do a good job helping those guys out, and that's the mindset to have."

Illinois and UNLV tip off in Las Vegas, Nev. at 9:45 p.m. CT Tuesday.  The game will be televised on CBS Sports Network.
