Illinois Basketball: Strengths and Weaknesses of 2014-15 Fighting Illini Roster
USA TODAY Sports

The 2013-14 Illinois Fighting Illini squad posted a 20-15 record, including a 7-11 mark in Big Ten play. John Groce's bunch had their highs and lows, but the season ultimately ended with a 50-49 loss at Clemson in the second round of the NIT.

Last season was considered a rebuilding year by many accounts, yet the Orange and Blue only fell short of the NCAA tournament by a win or two. The team only had 10 active scholarship players, seven of whom wore the Illinois jersey for the first time.

The 2014-15 Illini should enter this coming season with higher expectations, as they return five starters, add three stud transfers and bring in two recruits. Look for Illinois to be an under-the-radar sleeper, with the potential to finish in the top four of the B1G.
