🏀 MBB: For the first time since 2005 and third time in school history, the U of I Fighting Illini won the Big Ten Conference championship, and in dramatic fashion, no less, by beating the Ohio State Buckeyes 91–88 in overtime yesterday. Can we get an I-L-L?

  • Ayo Donsunmu (the game's MVP), Kofi Cockburn and André Curbelo led the team with 16 points each. Along with the ’ship, this win clinched their No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. Let’s dance!

🏐 Notre Dame volleyball: Bouncing back from their shocking 3-2 loss to the Florida State Seminoles on Friday, the No. 14-ranked Fighting Irish women’s volleyball team beat the Virginia Tech Hokies in straight sets on Saturday. The luck of the Irish is so back.

🤸‍♀️ Women’s college gymnastics: The No. 22-ranked U of I’s women’s gymnastics team closed out their regular season on Saturday by beating the No. 7-ranked Minnesota Gophers with a total score of 197.575, breaking the school record for the best all-around score. Flippin’ rad.

  • Next, the Illini will compete in the Big Ten Conference Championship meet this Saturday. Time to follow the men’s basketball team and bring another piece of hardware back to Urbana-Champaign.
