No. 2 Texas and No. 17 Illinois will look to pad their respective impressive early-season resumes when they square off on Tuesday as part of the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York.

The Longhorns (6-0) roll into Tuesday matchup off a 72-67 win at home over then-No. 7 Creighton on Thursday. The victory was Texas’ second over a top-10 team this season and its first in an AP Top 10 matchup since 2009, when No. 2 Texas claimed a 79-68 win over No. 9 Michigan State.

"I don’t think we’ve proven anything," Texas coach Chris Beard said. "We’re just a team that’s trying to get better. That’s not the sexiest answer, but it’s true. It’s December. You get to February or March, you can get to proving things. We’re just kind of chipping away."
