Illinois has struggled at the start of the 2015-16 season and things didn’t look too much better on Monday night. Playing in their temporary home of Springfield, the Illini trailed Chicago State for most of the game before rallying late to tie things up.

After forcing a shot-clock violation on the defensive end, the Illinois offense got a chance to win and freshman Jalen Coleman-Lands didn’t disappoint. The four-star recruit nailed the game-winning 3-pointer to give Illinois the 82-79 win.
