The Illinois basketball Big Ten schedule for the 2023-24 season was released, and it seems favorable for the Illini. They will face six programs twice in the conference play, including Rutgers and Michigan, who didn’t make the NCAA tournament last season. The toughest opponents are projected to be Michigan State and Purdue. Despite not having any dominant teams in the Big Ten, Illinois is aiming for another successful season and has a history of sustained success in conference play under coach Brad Underwood. They hope to secure a spot in the Sweet 16 this year.
