Illini postseason games on this date


March 16 has been a busy date in Illini basketball history, both for the men and the women. Here’s a review of the 13 postseason games played on this date:

Bloch-Jones ties for 14th at nationals

Albuquerque, N.M. — Illinois freshman Kandie Bloch-Jones tied for 14th in the women’s high jump and earned second-team All-America honors Saturday at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Bloch-Jones geared for success

CHAMPAIGN — After Kandie Bloch-Jones won a Big Ten high jump title March 1, the Illinois freshman was pleasantly surprised to learn her reward wasn’t only a shiny first-place medal. Or an all-expenses-paid trip to Albuquerque, N.M., for the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Tennis team cruises twice

URBANA — Tim Kopinski, Blake Bazarnik and Ross Guignon each won two singles matches, leading No. 6 Illinois to a 4-1 men’s tennis victory against South Florida and a 5-0 victory against Pepperdine on Friday at Atkins Tennis Center.

No. 12 Michigan 84, UI 53: Notebook

CHAMPAIGN — Her goal was to win a gold medal during the Winter Olympics in Sochi. That didn’t happen, but former Illini track and field star Aja Evans came home with a little more hardware than she had when she left for Russia.

Bloch-Jones soars to Big Ten title

GENEVA, Ohio — For her first indoor Big Ten Championships, Argenta-Oreana product Kandie Bloch-Jones probably couldn’t have written a better ending.

Bloch-Jones cleared 5 feet, 103/4 inches in the high jump to place first Saturday.

Baseball team snaps short skid

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — A four-run fifth inning and a steady outing by Drasen Johnson allowed the Illinois baseball team to end a two-game slide with a 5-4 win against Coastal Carolina on Saturday in the Illini’s second game during the Caravelle Resort’s Baseball at the Beach tournament.
