Illinois drops Big Ten opener at Northwestern

Sat, 12/02/2017 - 03:10
ROSEMONT -- Illinois' Big Ten opener checked all of the boxes you'd expect in an earlier-than-expected conference opener against an in-state rival. It was close. There were turnovers (36 overall), Neither team shot above 42 percent. And in the end the (much) younger team fell one possession short. Illinois (6-2, 0-1) picked up its second bitter road pill to swallow in a 72-68 overtime loss that came on the heels of a disappointing loss at Wake Forest earlier in the week. For Nor...

Season preview: Eisenhower Panthers

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 00:54
Don't tell Eisenhower it's a rebuilding year. The Panthers lost senior stars Stephon Bobbitt, Stefon Jarrett and Julian Jones, yes, but high-scoring guards Yansyn Taylor and Quylan Young are back along with an array of interesting newcomers to the rotation. Eisenhower was 23-9 last season, equaling the program's win total in the five years prior to coach Rodney Walker's arrival in 2014-15. This season they've already shown they're ready to make waves again, with wins over Champaign Ce...
