-- Illlinois-Chicago beat Eastern Michigan, 74-48. Might not catch your eye, but UIC is now 9-1 on the season – it won eight games all of last season.
Illinois-Chicago was one of the worst teams in the country the last three seasons, never winning more than eight games. This season they are already 8-1 with wins over Northwestern and Colorado State. They can struggle shooting from the field, but they make their free-throws and don’t commit turnovers. Teams have to beat them because they don’t beat themselves. They also have the 10th best field goal percentage defense in the country, so they can stay in games even if they can’t score.
