Illinois basketball has officially lost two of their top assistant coaches from this past season.

It was announced on Monday that not only is Orlando Antigua heading to Kentucky, but Chin Coleman is also departing for the Wildcats. Coaching-wise, this is a big blow to the Illini because they were two good recruiters who could bring in the talent.
