CHAMPAIGN -- Chicago Bulls fans in Central Illinois didn't need their TV's to see the team in action Friday. The Bulls hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers in an exhibition game at Assembly Hall.

Organizers wanted fans to feel like they were in the United Center. That meant bringing the Luv-a-Bulls Dance Team along, and mascot "Benny the Bull" helped keep the crowd entertained.

You knew something was different when you looked into the stands. The last time Assembly Hall hosted a pre-season game was 2008. University leaders would like to see more NBA games come to town.
