Chicago State will be part of a multi-team basketball event at No. 8 Illinois to replace Wright State, which dropped out Friday.
The Cougars will face Illinois on Thursday. Illinois opens the season Wednesday against North Carolina A&T and then plays Ohio on Friday.
Wright State withdrew from the event citing a lack of available players due to positive COVID-19 tests, contact tracing quarantine and injuries.
No public tickets to the event will be sold.
