Illini Basketball Will Be on the Move

The University of Illinois says an arena renovation project will force its basketball teams to play somewhere other than the campus for a few games during the 2015-2016 season.

The men’s team will play one exhibition game and four nonconference games outside of the State Farm Center. The university is looking for venues. Some women’s games will be moved, too.
