Illinois basketball ruined my Tuesday evening. The Illini fell 84-68 at Purdue, a far cry from the tightly contested double-overtime affair in Champaign on Jan. 17.

The Illini are now tied with Purdue and Wisconsin atop the Big Ten standings. Each team has seven games left.

It’s pretty clear Purdue has more talent than Illinois, but I thought the Illini had a better team. We will see if these teams meet again in March. Right now, this loss sucks.
