UI roundup: Women bounce Fort Wayne

CHAMPAIGN — The Illinois women’s basketball team had gone nearly two weeks without a win.

But the Illini will head to Washington, D.C., where they play George Washington at 11 a.m. on Sunday in the team’s first road game, with a bit more confidence after a 56-33 win on Friday night in front of 1,173 fans at State Farm Center against Fort Wayne.

John Groce believes in “strength in numbers.” But the Illini coach found a group he liked in the second half of Tuesday’s 88-74 win against North Carolina State, and more or less stuck with it.
