It's going to be an interesting year for Illinois basketball. For one, they have a new coach, but then on top of that, they also only have 9 players (or is it 10, now?). On the bright side, Mark Smith is the first Mr. Basketball to come here in a while so maybe he'll save us. Who knows.

Regardless, we now have a conference schedule and can start postulating about wins and losses. 

To check out the full schedule, look at Illini Basketball's tweet below:
