Quick hits: Winnable game against Badgers slips away from Illini

What happened

It was a winnable game Wednesday night at State Farm Center and an opportunity to end what’s nearing a decade of consecutive losses to Wisconsin. Illinois’ poor shooting, though, sank any of those chances.

What it means

The trend of the season happened again. Consistency on offense and a full 40-minute effort were missing at crucial stretches, just like the Illini’s shooting at key segments during the second half.

What’s next

Nothing easy. Illinois (5-14, 1-7 Big Ten) heads to New York City and Madison Square Garden to face off against No. 13 Maryland (16-4, 7-2) at 11 a.m. on Saturday in the first half of the Big Ten’s basketball/hockey doubleheader.
