The basketball team at Illinois is likely not celebrating their blowout the way the team at Illinois State will today. The Illini were victims of a 78-62 win to the Big Ten's best team, Michigan State, last night in Champaign. Illinois was within six points with around six minutes left to play, then watched the Spartans score at will as they pulled away for the 16 point win. Meanwhile, Illinois State traveled to Iowa to take on Drake last night and came away with a 77-63 win. The Redbirds ran to an 18-6 lead in the first half and never looked back in picking up their eleventh win of the season.
