My, how the season has changed for the Fighting Illini. After beginning the season at 11-2 in nonconference play and opening Big Ten play with two wins, the Illini have since dropped six straight to Big Ten opponents, most recently a disappointing 56-46 loss to archrival Indiana in Bloomington.
The Illini must right their season immediately if they hope to reach any postseason play, which is a tall task given their upcoming schedule. Illinois heads back to Champaign to face off against No. 10 Iowa and No. 9 Wisconsin before heading back on the road.
Here, we look at the Illini's keys to turning around their 2014 season.
