OSU vs Illinois-Chicago - 7:00 PM - Gill Coliseum - Radio on KPAM 860
The Beavers wrap up non-conference play tonight against Illinois-Chicago. The Beavers are coming off a 87-79 loss against George Washington on Saturday.

Jared Cunnungham led the Beavers with 21 points on Saturday. Nemanja Mikic and Tony Taylor led the Colonials with 19 points.

As far as starters go, the Beavers have been mixing it up lately. On Saturday, Joe Burton, Omari Johnson, and Angus Brandt got the start down low, with Jared Cunningham and Calvin Haynes in the backcourt. Expect that lineup tonight when the Beavers take the court.

Head coach Craig Robinson had this to say after the loss, "We worked on a couple of things in practice and what I'm finding is we are the proverbial balloon. We squeeze one end and it pops out on the other side. I have to do a better job of getting these guys to do everything right."

Illinois-Chicago, a Division I member of the Horizon League, is currently 5-7 on the season.

The Flames are coming off a 57-54 upset against 21st Ranked Illinois. Their other victories have come over Roosevelt, Toledo (twice), and Rhode Island.

Remember, tip-off is set for 7:00 PM on KPAM 860.

Go Beavers!
