INDIANAPOLIS, IN. (WAND-TV) -- In 2018, the Illini men's basketball team won just 12 games. The next season, they won 21. Last year, they won 24 and made it to the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament. This season, players and coaches are expecting a lot more.
With far more depth on the team than in year's past, Head Coach Brad Underwood has a good problem on his hands. Who will start, who will play, and how do you divvy up 40 minutes among 10-plus guys who can all be theoretical starters.
