Illinois' locker room went nuts after closing out season with win over Ohio State
There may not be a hotter team in college basketball right now than Illinois. The Fighting Illini have closed out the regular season on a four-game winning streak, which includes victories over ranked opponents No. 25 Wisconsin, No. 2 Michigan and No. 7 Ohio State.
Illinois closed out the season with a big road win on Saturday, defeating the Buckeyes 73-68 in Columbus. It was the first game back for Ayo Dosunmu, who suffered a face injury in the team’s loss to Michigan State two weeks ago.
After the game, the Illini locker room was going nuts, celebrating a four-game winning streak and no in the mix for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. They are also the No. 2 seed in the B1G Tournament next week.
Here was the team’s reaction on Saturday:

Brad Underwood’s team is playing its best at the right time.
