The Big Ten Tournament champion Illinois earned an automatic bid and the No. 3 seed in the East region of the NCAA Tournament and will play No. 14 seed Morehead State on Thursday in Omaha, Neb.

Illinois is one of only three Big Ten teams to earn a bid in each of the last four NCAA Tournaments. The Illini are making their 34th NCAA Tournament appearance, and they have an all-time NCAA Tournament record of 42-34.

Illinois is led by fifth-year senior Terrence Shannon Jr., who was named first-team All-Big Ten. He is the conference’s second-leading scorer and No. 8 nationally at 21.6 points per game — the highest scoring average by an Illini in the last 51 years.

Graduate student Marcus Domask was also a first-team All-Big Ten pick. He was the Big Ten Newcomer of the Year. Domask is one of the nation’s top transfers, averaging 16.0 points and 4.9 rebounds while leading the Illini with 3.5 assists per game.

Morehead State earned an automatic bid as the Ohio Valley Conference champion and has a school-record 26 wins. This is Eagles’ ninth NCAA Tournament appearance and second in the past four seasons (2020-21).

Graduate student Riley Minix was named the Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Year. Minix made an immediate impact for the Eagles after transferring from Southeastern. He led the OVC with 18 double-doubles (which ranks sixth nationally), including one in each of his last nine games to end the regular season as MSU finished the year with a 14-4 record to earn a share of its second-straight and 11th overall OVC championship.
