Sunday Morning: Illinois Fighting Illini Basketball Headlines for Nov. 7-13

A busy week concluded last night with Illinois basketball improving to 3-0 with a 22-point win against Southern Illinois.

Now comes the real test for the Illini, which travel to New York to play Texas on Thursday night and either Pittsburgh or Maryland on Friday.

With that said, here’s a recap of the week that was, including the Illini getting signatures from Mike Shaw, Tracy Abrams, Mycheal Henry and Nnanna Egwu.
