    College basketball season rolls on and we have a full serving of conference matchups on Tuesday. The most intriguing matchup is Ohio State traveling to Illinois in a battle of two of the most volatile teams in the Big Ten. The Buckeyes just snapped a five game Big Ten losing streak while Illinois’ heater was stopped with a 15-point loss to Indiana. I’m looking at the side in a battle of two teams looking for consistency. Meanwhile, I also have plays on two Big 12 games between Oklahoma and TCU in Fort Worth as well as a rematch between Oklahoma State and Texas. Here’s three write ups for games I’ve bet, but make sure to check out my betstamp for a few more that I played on Tuesday’s slate:College basketball record to date89-70-2, +16.34UCollege basketball best bets for Tuesday, January 24th Illinois -3.5 vs. Ohio State Oklahoma +5.5 vs. TCU Oklahoma State vs. Texas UNDER 136.5 Illinois vs. Ohio State prediction and pickWe’ll see Zed Key’s availability for this one after he had an awkward landing at the end...
    Bret Bielema, Illinois Fighting Illini. (Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images) With Week 0 in the books, we have seen enough to make some claims about college football. Even though only 22 college football teams played games that count on Saturday, we have seen enough from Week 0’s action to give you the Decoldest and most honest truths imaginable. Why waste your time watching ranked teams play the games when they are only going to disappoint you in the end? This is why you should always have grandiose takeaways from the other guys of college football. So instead of aiming for the bushes after Aviva Stadium ran out of Guinness and Bushmills on Saturday night, let’s make sense out of all the nonsense from Week 0. The truth hurts, but like Shane Falco once said: Pain heals, chicks dig scars and glory lasts forever.College football: 5 ridiculous overreactions from Week 05. Bret Bielema’s Illinois Fighting Illini will be this year’s Georgia on defenseLet’s be real. If you look at the all-22s, as in all 22 teams that took part in Week...
    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Elected officials in Illinois can continue to use campaign funds to pay for their legal defense, according to a recent ruling by the Illinois Supreme Court.Alderman Byron Sigcho-Lopez appealed his complaint with the court in 2019, demanding to set a precedent and alleging former Alderman Danny Solis improperly used $220,000 from the 25th Ward's campaign fund for defense lawyers.Solis avoided federal prosecution by agreeing to cooperate with the FBI and Department of Justice in their investigation of Alderman Ed Burke, according to the Chicago-Sun Times.The Illinois Supreme Court ruled since the General Assembly hasn't specifically prohibited elected officials from using campaign funds to pay criminal defense lawyer fees, it would be up to the Board of elections to rule on a case-by-case basis."In this case, despite the parties' arguments regarding legal defense fees incurred as a result of public corruption allegations, the record here reveals that Solis had not been indicted on criminal charges but only that he had worked with federal investigators using his official capacity to expose public corruption," the court said in its ruling.In...

    An Illinois Democratic staffer who mocked the Waukesha attack that killed five and injured dozens in Wisconsin was fired for her 'callous and reprehensible' tweets in which she linked the massacre with Kyle Rittenhouse's highly-publicized acquittal last week.  Mary Lemanski, 46, a part-time social media director for the DuPage Democratic Party, had tweeted that the attack on Sunday 'was probably just self-defense,' and  'I'm sure he didn't want to hurt anyone. He came to help people.'  'Living in Wisconsin, he probably felt threatened.'   The since-deleted, scornful posts triggered outrage online.  Lemanski, a mother of two, then said her remarks were 'not in good taste' and resigned in a comment on the DuPage Democratic party Facebook page, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.  Democratic Party leaders for the county, located about 70 miles from Kenosha, quickly got rid of Lemanski on Monday. 'The Democratic Party of DuPage County immediately severed all ties with Mary Lemanski once we became aware of her callous and reprehensible posts,' County Chair Ken Mejia-Beal said in a statement.  Mary Lemanski, 46, who worked for the Democratic Party in DuPage County since 2018 as the...
    An Illinois Democratic staffer brazenly mocked the Waukesha SUV tragedy that killed five and injured dozens in Wisconsin on Sunday, sarcastically equating the incident to Kyle Rittenhouse's highly-publicized acquittal last week. 'It was probably just self-defense,' Mary Lemanski, 46, reportedly the social media director for the Democratic Party in DuPage County, wrote on Twitter Sunday night in the wake of the Wisconsin attack, in the first of a string of since-deleted, scornful posts.   'Living in Wisconsin, he probably felt threatened,' Lemanski continued in her late-night tirade, referring to the SUV driver in the Waukesha case. 'I'm sure he didn't want to hurt anyone,' she added. 'He came to help people.' Illinois Democratic staffer set off social media with a string of since-deleted social media posts Sunday night mocking the tragic attack on a parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, that saw at least five people die The posts seemed to make light of the successful self-defense argument that 18-year-old Rittenhouse and his defense team made during the teen's recent trial over two shooting deaths in Kenosha last year - which saw...
    After Sunday’s Christmas parade horror in Waukesha, Wisconsin, an Illinois Democrat appeared to portray the tragedy as a form of payback for Friday’s acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha. "It was probably self-defense," read one of a series of mocking social media posts from Mary Lemanski, who is listed as the social media director for the Democratic Party in DuPage County, Illinois. Lemanski also describes herself as an acting student with the famed Second City comedy group. "Living in Wisconsin, he probably felt threatened," read another post attributed to Lemanski, referring to the SUV driver in the Waukesha case. WAUKESHA PARADE HORROR: PERSON OF INTEREST IN CUSTODY, FATALITIES REPORTED "I’m sure he didn’t want to hurt anyone," she added. "He came to help people." The messages appeared to mock the self-defense argument that Rittenhouse and his defense team made during their recent trial – an argument with which a Wisconsin jury apparently agreed as they found the 18-year-old not guilty of murder in connection with two shooting deaths last year. "The blood of Kyle Rittenhouse’s victims is on the hands...
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Chase Brown rushed 33 times for 150 yards, and the Illinois defense delivered six sacks and two interceptions of Minnesota quarterback Tanner Morgan on the way to a 14-6 victory on Saturday. Kerby Joseph picked off Morgan at the Illini 45-yard line with 38 seconds left to halt the too-little-too-late rally by the Gophers (6-3, 4-2), whose four-game winning streak that catapulted them into sole possession of first place in the Big Ten West Division was stopped cold.

    NORMAL, Ill. (AP) — Quincy Patterson threw a touchdown pass and the North Dakota State defense allowed just 99 total yards as the Bison beat Illinois State 20-0 on Saturday. Patterson was 13-of-22 passing for 124 yards with two interceptions and added 100 yards rushing on 18 carries.

Jake Reinholz made a 46-yard field goal on the final play of the first half and kicked a 24-yarder to make it 13-0 with 5:41 left in the game.

    COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Bryce Dewberry returned a fumble 90 yards for a pivotal touchdown and Eastern Illinois went on to defeat Tennessee Tech 28-14 in an Ohio Valley Conference opener on Saturday. Midway through the fourth quarter, Tennessee Tech drove inside the 10-yard line looking to tie the score.

JB Pritzker on Thursday signed two bills helping provide legal representation for immigrants in Cook County, and also launching a public information campaign statewide to ensure immigrants and refugees know their rights. “The legislation I’m signing today builds on our nation-leading efforts to make Illinois a welcoming state for immigrants and refugees,” Gov.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago native and former Illinois congressman and U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has died. In a statement Wednesday, Rumsfeld’s family said he died surrounded by family in Taos, New Mexico at the age of 88. READ MORE: Gas Leak Prompts Evacuation At Palos Heights Nursing Home “History may remember him for his extraordinary accomplishments over six decades of public service, but for those who knew him best and whose lives changed forever as a result, we will remember his unwavering love for his wife Joyce, his family and friends, and the integrity he brought to a life dedicated to country,” the family statement said.

    Mount Prospect, Illinois officer Lisa Schaps told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that she lost her job as a school resource officer after sharing her "authentic" and "vulnerable" defense of her badge and thin blue line patch, which local residents claimed was "divisive."  Schaps reportedly served as the school resource officer at Prospect High School.  She explained that she spoke out about the thin blue line patches during a village board meeting on June 15th and then appeared on "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday where she did the same.  Journal & Topics reported that Schaps, who was one of two officers who came before the board to talk about what the thin blue line means to them, said when the patch was created in 2017, "it was never about hate. It was never about oppression." "It's about honor. It's about pride. It's about kinship," Schaps told "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday. "You know, I even said love. I've got children. I've got family…it's all of those things and it's just really important to us." Schaps told host Ainsley Earhardt on Thursday that...
    INDIANAPOLIS (CBS) — Many hoped Illinois and Loyola would meet a little later in the NCAA Tournament, but they’re meeting on Sunday. A trip to the Sweet 16 is on the line in the all-Illinois matchup. READ MORE: Missing 19-Year-Old Curtis Mason Smith Found Dead In Frederick County This is the schools’ second ever meeting in the NCAA tourney. Loyola won in 1963 en route to a national title. The Illini are a No. 1 seed, who have won 15 of 16 and have been overpowering their opponents – with their two All-Americans Ayo Dosunmu and Kofi Cockburn, and a number of great role players like Trent Frazier and Andre Curbelo, among others. The No. 8-seeded Ramblers have also been red hot, winning 18 of 19. They get it done with the number one scoring defense in the country, and their own third-team All-American Cameron Krutwig. It should be a fun one for all basketball fans in the state. “It’s great for our state. I think it speaks volumes to their program and the job Porter (Moser) has done,” said...
    David Dobrik Dropped From Brand Partnerships Following Vlog Squad Misconduct Allegations Miami Beach extends curfew to control spring break crowds From this point forward in the NCAA tournament, please resist any temptation to label Loyola Chicago some type of cuddly underdog. There are obvious urges to do so, as they come from a mid-major conference, entered the NCAA tournament as a No. 8 seed and have the eternally divine Sister Jean as their spiritual beacon. In the wake of its wire-to-wire evisceration of No. 1 Illinois on Saturday, casting Loyola as an underdog would make as much sense as casting Bobcat Goldthwait in a "Godfather" sequel. Loyola isn’t a Cinderella, it's a team of well-trained assassins. For 40 brass-knuckle minutes on Sunday, the Ramblers showed the only fitting label they should carry with them the next few weeks — national title contenders. The indelible image from the game came in the final minute, when Loyola’s crafty big man, Cameron Krutwig, swiped the ball from Illinois star guard Ayo Dosunmu and broke into a dance typically reserved for WWE heels...
    KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — An Illinois 18-year-old charged with killing two people during street protests in Kenosha last summer faces a judge Thursday with prosecutors asking that he be re-arrested. Prosecutors say Kyle Rittenhouse violated conditions of his $2 million bond by failing to inform the court of his current address. They've asked Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder to issue an arrest warrant and hike Rittenhouse's bond by $200,000. Rittenhouse's attorneys say threats have forced him into hiding, and they say they offered to give prosecutors Rittenhouse's current address if it stays under seal. Prosecutors have refused, saying the public is entitled to know where Rittenhouse is and that the defense hasn't presented any evidence of an immediate threat. Rittenhouse came to Kenosha in August from nearby Antioch, Illinois, as hundreds of people were protesting the police shooting that left Jacob Blake, a Black man, paralyzed. Prosecutors say Rittenhouse, who is white and was 17 at the time, answered a militia group’s call on social media to protect Kenosha businesses. He is accused of killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony...

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Illinois coach Brad Underwood challenged his defense at halftime. The 12th-ranked Fighting Illini responded like champions. Trent Frazier scored Illinois’ final 10 points in regulation and put the Illini ahead with a free throw in overtime, and the defense took care of the rest in a 75-71 victory over Indiana on Tuesday night. “It was the first time in a while I’ve been really, really upset with my basketball team at halftime,” Underwood said. “Giving up 41 points in the first half is not real conducive to winning on the road. We looked lost. It was just real lethargic and they whipped us (inside). But we responded.” Emphatically. Frazier finished with 19 points and Kofi Cockburn added 16 points and 10 rebounds. But Illinois wouldn’t have won its third straight — or for the first time since 2010 on the Hoosiers’ home court — without a suffocating defense. Illinois gave up only two baskets over the final 11 1/2 minutes and only one basket and three points in overtime, which started with the Illini taking charges...

Ajani Kennedy had 14 rebounds for UT Martin (5-9, 3-7 Ohio Valley Conference). Eastern Illinois totaled 18 first-half points, a season low for the team.

Madani Diarra had nine rebounds. ___ For more AP college basketball coverage: https://apnews.com/Collegebasketball and http://twitter.com/AP_Top25 ___ This was generated by Automated Insights, http://www.automatedinsights.com/ap, using data from STATS LLC, https://www.stats.com Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    Illinois (2-4, 2-4 Big Ten) at No. 15 Northwestern (5-1, 5-1, No. 14 CFP), Saturday at noon EST (ESPN2). Line: Northwestern by 14. Series record: Illinois leads 55-53-5. WHAT’S AT STAKE? Northwestern is back on top of the Big Ten West after going from winning the division in 2018 to finishing at the bottom last season and will face Ohio State in the conference championship game. The Wildcats secured their second trip to Indianapolis in three years last week because of league rules stating how many games must be played to be eligible. That number was three for Northwestern to clinch the division and Wisconsin to be eliminated from contention.

    Scott Drew watched No. 2 Baylor's first two games in quarantine. When he returned to the sideline Wednesday night, he found himself coaching in a vastly different atmosphere — and relying on a familiar script.

CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM To Drew, it felt like old times. “The last two games I thought our offense was further along than our defense," he said. “I think our defense has caught up more to where we were last year and you know you're going to need it to play like that every night to win games.” It's bad news for the rest of college basketball, though. Baylor (3-0) outrebounded the Fighting Illini 20-10 and forced twice as many turnovers as it committed in the second half while also outscoring Illinois in the paint and off the bench in the school's...

    By MICHAEL MAROT, AP Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Flagler scored 18 points and was one of four players in double figures for No. 2 Baylor, which pulled away late Wednesday night to beat No. 5 Illinois 82-69 in the second game of the Jimmy V Classic. Baylor (3-0) won for the first time this season with coach Scott Drew on the sideline.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Justin Fields and Ohio State are scoring points by the truckload, as expected, but cracks in the defense have made for some unsatisfying finishes of late for the No. 3 Buckeyes.

Down 35-7 early in the second half, the Hoosiers fought back, leaving the Buckeyes (4-0, CFP No. 4) and their exploited secondary happy to get out of nearly empty Ohio Stadium with a 42-35 win. The previous week, the Buckeyes got a surprising late battle from Rutgers. Up 35-3 at halftime, they let the Scarlet Knights outscore them 24-14 in the second half. Ohio State won 49-27, but it was an unsettling day for coach Ryan Day and his defense. “I don’t think there’s been anything schematically where you look at it and be like, ‘Well, that’s not good,’” Day said. “I mean, again we’re up 35-7 (in the Indiana game) with a defense designed to avoid big plays, and we had too many big plays. So, I think schematically we’re right...
    KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — An Illinois 17-year-old accused of killing two people during a protest in Wisconsin was seen smiling in a photo with his lawyer and “Silver Spoons” actor Ricky Schroder after being released from custody by posting a $2 million bond. Kyle Rittenhouse is accused of fatally shooting Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz during a demonstration Aug. 25 that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. He posted bond through his attorney at about 2 p.m. Friday. Hours after being released, L. Lin Wood of Atlanta, a member of Rittenhouse’s defense team tweeted a photo of Rittenhouse, Ricky Schroder and attorney John Pierce, under a title of “FREE AT LAST!!!” Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, told police he was attacked while he was guarding a business and that he fired in self-defense. He faces multiple charges, including intentional homicide, reckless endangerment and being a minor in possession of a firearm. Wisconsin law doesn’t permit minors to carry or possess a gun unless they’re hunting. He is due back in court on Dec. 3...
    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Mohamed Ibrahim rushed for 224 yards and four touchdowns and Tanner Morgan threw for one more and Minnesota beat depleted Illinois 41-14 on Saturday. Ibrahim now has back-to-back games in which he has scored four rushing touchdowns for Minnesota (1-2, 1-2 Big Ten). It was his second consecutive 200-yard rushing game. “I think he’s one of the most special backs in America, and when you see him walking down the street, who would think he’s a Big Ten running back?” said Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck. “He’s not the biggest. He’s not the strongest. He’s not the fastest. But he’s got incredible vision.” Morgan was 17 of 27 passing for 231 yards and a touchdown. He also threw an interception. Illinois (0-3, 0-3) had 12 players out due to COVID-19 protocols and was down to fourth-string QB Coran Taylor. Starter Brandon Peters and backup Isaiah Washington were out, and third-string QB Matt Robinson remained unavailable after suffering a leg injury early in the Purdue game last week. Taylor wasn’t awful, going 6 of 17 through the air...

Patterson opened the scoring with a 5-yard run about three minutes into the game and his 56-yard TD with 2:14 left in the first half gave Buffalo (1-0, 1-0 Mid-American Conference) a 21-10 lead.

    Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse was ordered held on $2 million cash bail Monday during his first court appearance on homicide charges in the Wisconsin city. Judge Loren Keating ruled that Rittenhouse, who fled to his home in Illinois after the fatal shooting of two protesters, represented a serious flight risk. “The charges are incredibly serious and again, if a conviction occurs there would be a likelihood of an imposition of a mandatory life sentence or at least significant amounts of time, likely decades of a period of incarceration,” the judge said.  “I believe that there’s a reasonable basis to flee.” The live-streamed court appearance marked the first time the teen was in Kenosha since the Aug. 25 protest where he’s accused of gunning down protesters Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and injuring Gaige Grosskreutz, 22. The teen’s lawyers claim he acted in self-defense. Grosskreutz and relatives of the two dead men were among those taking part in the hearing. “Kyle Rittenhouse thinks he’s above the law,” Huber’s father, John Huber, told the judge. “He’s been created as such...
    KYLE Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old from Illinois accused of fatally shooting two demonstrators in Kenosha, was extradited on Friday to Wisconsin where he will face homicide charges.  A lawyer for Rittenhouse—who took a gun to Kenosha on a third night of civil unrest in August—argued that his client should be released from custody where he had been held due to a technical error in an extradition request from Wisconsin. 6Kyle Rittenhouse wore a mask and dress shirt in the courthouse in Waukegan, IllinoisCredit: Reuters 6Kyle Rittenhouse took a rifle to demonstrations in Kenosha, WisconsinCredit: Getty Images - Getty However on Friday afternoon, Lake County Circuit Judge Paul Novak ruled in favor of prosecutors that the paperwork was correct, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  Rittenhouse’s defense team also argued that Illinois sending the teenager to Wisconsin would violate his constitutional rights. Meanwhile, Lake County Assistant States Attorney Stephen Scheller argued, “you can imagine the chaos if someone can commit a crime and step over the [state borderline] and get sanctuary.” Novak ruled that Rittenhouse’s rights and self-defense claims must be brought...
