99 in 99: #10 Illinois Fighting Illini

Illini cheerleaders

Without question, this is the most talent the Illinois Fighting Illini has put on the floor since their 2004-2005 Champaign Campaign.  There is a good mix of size, athleticism, and guard play; veterans and newcomers.  The question will be whether or not this group can put it all together and live up to the high expectations entering this season.  The first step begins tonight when Illinois tips-off their season against UC-Irvine.
