UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- More than 100 women went to school Tuesday night, to learn the ABC's of playing hoops. The teacher was none other than UI head coach John Groce. The entire Illini Basketball staff was on-hand to help teach the chalk talk.

It was held at the Ubben Practice Facility. It was hands-on teaching about all aspects of the game of basketball. All proceeds go to Coaches vs. Cancer. They plan for it to be an annual event.
