UConn is one of the biggest favorites to win the NCAA championship. However, Illinois doesn’t mind about the predictions and all the other stuff but is determined to make an upset and eliminate the Huskies.

Before Betting on the Illinois Fighting Illini vs. UConn Huskies

Terrence Shannon Jr. is the biggest star on the Fighting Illini team. He averages 23.5 points per game and presents an absolute threat to any defense in the country. Two nights ago, he was the man against Iowa State, delivering 29 buckets and pushing Illinois to the Elite Eight.

This team is physically very well endowed and has players able to protect and attack the paint regardless of the opponents on the other side. They had 41 boards against Iowa, with all the guys from the starting lineup grabbing at least five rebounds. 

The Huskies have triumphed in the past 10 matches and are 34-3 this season, which only shows the dominance of this unit. They have everything in place, starting with the defense, offense, physicality, and, most importantly, consistency in all these areas.

The previous three games show the dominance of this unit. After trashing the Stetson Hatters 91-52, they were better than the Northwestern Wildcats, 75-58 and then the San Diego State Aztecs 82-52. As you can see from all these results, the defense of this unit is at the highest possible level, and they aren’t slowing down for a single moment during 40 minutes.
