Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

John Groce's Illinois Fighting Illini have dropped 10 of their last 11 contests, posting a 3-10 Big Ten record, good for last place in the 12-team conference. Illinois started league play with an overtime victory over Indiana, but have only posted a pair of wins against Penn State since that point.

Heading into their second matchup versus Penn State, Groce switched up the starting lineup, moving freshmen Kendrick Nunn and Malcolm Hill into the starting five in place of seniors Joseph Bertrand and Jon Ekey. Tracy Abrams, Rayvonte Rice and Nnanna Egwu have been mainstays as starters, though each have experienced their share of ups and downs as juniors.
