When I heard that the Fighting Illini were playing the Longwood Lancers tonight, my first thought was that one of the local high school teams had adopted the university's mascot. But, no, it turns out that Longwood
is a university (though, to be fair, it's smaller than a few high schools hereabouts) and that they've been in Division I for months. Longwood's only victory in 14 tries this season was a six point squeaker at home against Howard about two weeks ago. In the first matchup, at Howard two weeks earlier, Longwood lost by ten. William & Mary beat Longwood by thirty. I'm looking for the Illini to double up. And, no, I won't be watching.
: Illinois 105, Longwood 79. Not as bad as expected.
