Illinois Women's Basketball Team Hoping For Bounce back Year
CHAMPAIGN-- Illinois Women's Basketball Head Coach Matt Bollant says the goal this year is to make the NCAA Tournament. In order to do so, the Illini would have to make major strides after going just 2-14 in the Big Ten last season. The addition of McDonald's All-American Chatrice White will certainly help their chances. Bollant says she's a "program-changing" player.
"She's everything that we hoped she'd be. She wants to learn, she picks up things really fast. In the three days of practice, she's probably been our leading scorer and rebounder. "
The Fighting Illini open up the season November 8th, when they host Millikin in an exhibition game.
