The Flyin’ Illini will be at the State Farm Center this Saturday

It’s been 30(!) years since the famed Flyin’ Illini took Illinois into the Final Four, a feat that wouldn’t happen again until 2005 when we inched just one step closer to the elusive championship.

In celebration of their 30th anniversary, the team will reunite at the Penn State game this Saturday at 11 a.m. From

Several players, coaches and staff from the Flyin’ Illini are expected to be in attendance*, including Nick Anderson, Kenny Battle, Kendall Gill, Lowell Hamilton, Marcus Liberty, Stephen Bardo, and many more. Bardo will be calling the game for Big Ten Network. There will be a Meet & Greet, sponsored by Gameday Spirit, with the Flyin’ Illini on the court after the game.
