The Flyin' Illini was not only one of the greatest teams in Illinois history, it was truly one of the best in all of college basketball. It was a team that took Illinios fans on an unbelieveable and unforgettable journey through the 1988-89 season.
And 25 years later, it's still one of the most beloved teams to Orange and Blue fans worldwide.
It was a group of guys, all from the state of Illinois, who played with a style, energy and determination that might never be matched.
Join WCIA 3 Sports Director Aaron Bennett on this remarkable trip down memory lane with Illini legends Kendal Gill, Stephen Bardo, Larry Smith, Marcus Liberty and of course, Coach Lou Henson.
