Bracket expert: Illini still a No. 9 seed

Most years, the Illinois resume (17-11, 7-8 Big Ten) would land Bruce Weber’s squad on the wrong side of the bubble but this college basketball season isn’t like most years.

Yahoo! Sports bracket expert Brad Evans said the Illini would be a No. 9 seed if the tounament started tomorrow.

“Illinois, surprisingly, is still in for now,” Evans said. “Remember the backside of the bubble is awful. Teams don’t have comparable resumes.”

The Illini can improve their seeding with home games remaining against Iowa and Indiana,  a road trip to No. 8 Purdue and at least one game in the Big Ten Tournament.

“Win at home and win one game in the (Big Ten Tournament), and the Illini have nothing to worry about,” Evans said.
