And the second-best with its win over Rhode Island.
Rhode Island is actually having a rare down year for them. I would consider several other wins by the Horizon more appealing.
As for this game against UIC, I know they have some talent and have shown stretches of impressive play, but we need to put away a bottom of the conference caliber team. Even considering this a rivalry game, I would think we take care of UIC at home.

Am the UIC guy with MU season tix. Just in Milwaukee on Monday for the MU/ND game. Never would have figured that game that way, for sure....... May be back Thursday for our game, not sure. Depends on business. If so, be nice to me...... Hey, the Illinois win was more a condition of their losing the game because of their ability to "play down to the competition" as in recent years past with this set of seniors. BUT, we do keep score and WE won............. It may be one of those "bad" losses the NCAA tournament committee examines in March for the Illini unless they really impress with the rest of the Big10 season. Could cost them like last years bad losses if they are on any bubbles.. But then again, we DID win!!! We are a team in transition with a new coach, new system and new direction. All great things but takes time, especially with the amount of time Coach Moore and his staff had with the rotten timing of Jimmy Collins announcing his departure. We are improving and though we won't be anywhere near the conference first division I firmly believe we will be one of those temas "no one wants to play" come tournament time because of our becoming a real thorn in the side of the other conference teams, especially the second time around the conference schedule..... Have to wait and see. Birton got screwed with the suspension. Was at the game and Holman is a thug and an instigator. Birton should never have even been ejected, either...... Hey, good luck with the rest of your season..........
