Illini's biggest fan


Former Illinois basketball  coach Lou Henson smiles at the sight of his wife, Mary, on the television as he watches Saturday's game between Illinois and New Mexico State at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana with his daughter, Leigh Edison, and other family members. The winningest coach at both schools, Henson was scheduled to be honored prior to and during Saturday's game at the United Center in Chicago, but a stint in the hospital prevented him from making the trip.
