The 2023 men’s basketball season kicks off

The men's basketball team sits in chairs in a straight line on the basketball court. They are wearing white jersey's with orange lettering. Behind them in a second row, is a row of coaches wearing suits and ties. They are all men, except for two women on each side of the end of the back row.

The 25th-ranked Illinois Men’s basketball team starts their season tonight with an exhibition game against Ottawa. Even though the game is happening during Homecoming weekend, there are still tickets available. Exhibition games won’t impact the teams record and gives players and hint of what to expect in the coming season. There will be one more exhibition game next week, a fundraising game against Kansas. The game will be Coach Bill Selfs first game back at the State Farm Center since 2003, and a great opportunity to raise money for the people affected by the Maui wildfires.
