The University of Illinois Fighting Illini have been off to a great start this basketball year. After a disappointing loss to the Kansas Jayhawks in the second round of the NCAA tournament last year, Bruce Weber has his team off to a 10-0 start. The Illini started the year ranked 32 in the NCAA and has since improved to 19th. Illinois has found young talent in their center- Meyers Leonard and their point guard- Sam Maniscalco. Killer rebounding and lights-out three pointers have carried Illinois so far this year and we'll have to see just how far this young team could go. ILL-INI!
