These great players have wowed the Illini faithful for decades. Some have advanced the team to the NCAA tournament and then to the championship game. Others have gone on to have successful NBA careers or played in professional leagues overseas.
The players from these eras all had special talents and with the news about 3-on-3 basketball, it would be fun to see what the best teams would look like from the history of the Illinois basketball program.
Just three days ago, the Olympics announced they will now hold a 3-on-3 tournament. This will start in 2020 and the possibility on who will participate is fun to think about.
