Coach Bruce Weber shook up the Illini starting lineup before their win over Iowa. The Champaign shakeup could certainly be felt in Peoria. Former Peoria Richwoods star Bill Cole made his first Illini start. Former Peoria High star D.J. Richardson lost his starting job and came off the bench.

The results worked well for Weber. The Illini beat Iowa by 17 points and Richardson came off the bench to lead the Illini with 17 points.

Coach Weber says he's uncertain what starting lineup he'll use Saturday when they Illini play at Indiana.
