UCLA comes into this matchup off defeating Norfolk State by 30. The Bruins are led by Jaylen Clark who averages 18 points a game. They rank in top 50 in the nation in three-point percentage, field goal percentage and assist-to-turnover ratio, meaning they do not turn the ball over often. They are a fundamentally sound team.

Illinois comes into this game after beating Monmouth by almost 50 points. They are led by Terrance Shannon Jr, who dropped 30 in the last win. Skyy Clark, Illinois’ star freshman averages 6.7 points and 3.7 rebounds while shooting 50% from deep and 62.5% from the field.
