Every team is quarantined around Indianapolis due to COVID protocols. The Illini are embracing it.

“You know, I think we have the day of the 24-hour quarantine, and to be honest for us, it was much-needed. I mean, it was three games in three days in the Big Ten Tournament. We were tired. After that, our guys slept. They rested their bodies, watched film, and got caught up our next opponent,” said Illini Head Coach Brad Underwood.
