A case for every Top 25.....
« on: January 28, 2020, 11:50:49 AM »
ESPN.com has an article this morning outlining a case how each Top 25 team could conceivably win the championship.  Here's what they say about the Illini:

19. Illinois Fighting Illini

Three of the past five champions have ranked as a top-30 team in rebound rate AND top 70 in field goal percentage. Thus far, the Illini rank fourth and 45th, respectively. The Illini are a top-10 team in terms of minute continuity, according to KenPom data, and they are will to battle with anyone. Don't sleep on them!

Who'd have thunk it?
