What to watch in Big Ten basketball this weekend:
GAME OF THE WEEKEND
Rutgers at Illinois, Saturday. Both teams were picked in the bottom half of the Big Ten in the preseason. Both are surprises. Rutgers (12-3, 3-1) has won six straight and is one game behind league-leading Michigan State. The Scarlet Knights are out to their best 15-game start since the 1975-76 team went undefeated in the regular season. They haven’t been two games over .500 in conference play since February 2002.
