Big Ten: No. 9 Maryland Vs No. 20 Illinois With High Stakes
No. 9 Maryland is playing No. 20 Illinois in the Big Ten's game of the week. First place will be at stake along with perhaps a potential Big Ten Tournament tiebreaker when the Fighting Illini host the Terrapins on Friday in the only conference game that night. Maryland rallied from a 15-point deficit to win the first meeting two months ago.
