Illini Basketball releases non-conference schedule

Earlier this week, we reported that Illini Men’s Basketball had released their Big Ten schedule, which looked scary if you’ve ever been an Illini fan before. Of course every action produces an equal and opposite reaction, and today we get the full list of the U of I’s non-conference opponents, which leaves much to be desired.

Included on this year’s pre-Big Ten schedule are Wake Forest (as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge), Depaul, MIssouri New Mexico State and a couple of schools that I’m pretty sure aren’t even in Division 1. Either way, it looks like we should at least be able to win a handful of games this year (something an Illini fan should never utter).
