Shannon appeared in the Illini’s first 25 games before missing the close loss to Indiana on Saturday. He has been the team’s leading scorer, averaging 17 points while shooting 43.7% from the field and 32.3% from 3-point range. In addition to being the team’s leading scorer, Shannon is also second on the squad with 3 assists per game.
After Minnesota, Illinois next plays Thursday at home against Northwestern before a Sunday road trip to Ohio State. We’ll see when Shannon is able to return to action as the regular-season wraps up.
Illinois vs. Minnesota is set for 9 p.m. ET, airing on the Big Ten Network.
