With four or five potential pros on its roster and perhaps a couple of future NBA All-Stars, No. 14 Illinois was expected to challenge for the Big Ten Conference title back in November and potentially make a deep NCAA Tournament run. The Fighting Illini might still meet all of those lofty expectations, but they should probably consider playing with more urgency and toughness, beginning with Tuesday night's visit from conference rival Penn State. After sitting on an upset loss to Maryland for six days before Saturday's late morning tip-off with No. 21 Ohio State, Illinois promptly fell behind 10-2 and 37-19 in the first half of an eventual 87-81 defeat in Champaign.

Tenth-ranked Tennessee will take to the road on Tuesday in hopes of keeping alive its bid for a Southeastern Conference championship against the Florida Gators in Gainesville. The Volunteers (10-1, 4-1 SEC) have won three in a row and will be coming off an 81-61 home-court victory over Vanderbilt on Saturday night. Tennessee got the win over the Commodores thanks to a big, bounce-back contribution from Victor Bailey Jr. and his ability to connect from long range at a critical point in the game.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Virginia Tech kept turning the ball over, failing to secure loose rebounds and struggling to get offense from its two best scorers. Tyrece Radford and the rest of the 20th-ranked Hokies' supporting cast provided enough of a boost to offset that, including with some steady late-game play that kept them near the top of the Atlantic Coast Conference standings. Radford scored 20 points and hit some clutch late free throws to help Virginia Tech hold off Wake Forest 64-60 on Sunday, earning the Hokies' third league win in the span of eight days.
