As far as Illinois making the final 16, that's still a big question. They've struggled against Iowa and Northwestern and lost to the loosiers this year. You never know how they will show up from day to day. I was a bit worried after they dropped the doubles today against the Spartans but they rebounded nicely. At full strength, they can definitely be a top 16 team or better, but their lack mental strength it seems at times.

They've got a tough match with Minnesota on Friday so we'll see how well they do.
Minnesota lost its 1st or 2nd best player (Sebastian Gallego) to injury which was a bitter pill to swallow during a tough, close loss to Indiana. Don't know if he will be back in time but if not, Illinois should have the upper hand at home.
