Rotation #659
Illinois -7.5 over Penn State  (loss)
Penn State dismissed their leading scorer, Kayne Clary. Clary led the team in points and was the only significant player Mike Rhodes kept when he was hired as head coach of the Nittany Lions. Penn State is down a guard, and if Illinois is smart, they will take Ace Baldwin out of the game and leave Penn State with limited skilled players at the guard position. The Illini are better across the board and can play at the same tempo Penn State plays on their home court. Illinois is a bigger and stronger team that will dominate on the glass and outscore the Nittany Lions. Terrance Shannon is back in game shape and will have a big night. The Illini have too many guards for Penn State to keep up with. Take Illinois.
