Feb. 24 UI recruiting, women's basketball, volleyball & baseball chat

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - 2:00pm

The Illinois women's basketball team is moving closer to the end of its season with just two regular season games — both at home — remaining. The Illini baseball team is still unbeaten through two weekends. Volleyball is a fall sport, but that hasn't stopped Illini fans from still having plenty of questions. And recruiting is always happening.

UI roundup: Women's basketball overcomes sluggish shooting

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Illinois had missed 20 straight shots at one point in the first half of Saturday’s game at Purdue and shot just 15.8 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes.

The Illini’s deficit at that juncture? Just eight points. And coach Matt Bollant didn’t feel too bad about that.

Eye on the future: UI hoops Big Ten schedules out

Illinois’ men’s and women’s basketball on Thursday each released their list of home and road Big Ten foes for the 2015-16 season. A look at the slates, as well as thoughts from Marcus Jackson and Scott Richey:

 

Men

Home: Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State, Purdue, Rutgers, Wisconsin

Tate: Men's track and field team worth getting to know

Beginning last Thursday, when John Groce’s basketball team defeated Michigan in overtime, Illini sports teams won 16 events through Monday’s success in the Big Ten Golf Match Play Championships.

Road proves bumpy for Bollant's squad

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — The midrange jump shot is something of a lost art in basketball. Except, it seems, at Rutgers.

The 18th-ranked Scarlet Knights turned dribble penetration into a bevy of long and midrange twos Tuesday night against Illinois and got out in transition in the second half to finish off an 80-56 victory.
