Three reasons why I believe Michigan needs to beat Illinois in the opening round of the Big Ten Tournament to justify an NCAA tournament bid.

1. Michigan was only 9-9 in regular season Big Ten play. A loss to Illinois would mean the Wolverines being below .500 against Big Ten competition this season.

2. Michigan does not have a marquee victory this season.

3. It’s not like Michigan has been a college basketball power and should get any benefit of the doubt based on the recent past.
