FIGHTING ILLINI BASKETBALL BANDS HEADED TO NCAA TOURNAMENTS
On Wednesday, March 15, both Men’s and Women’s Basketball Bands will be traveling to support the Men’s and Women’s Fighting Illini Basketball Teams.
The men’s Hoops Band will depart from the State Farm Center at 9:00 AM and bus to Des Moines, Iowa where they will meet the team. They will have a bit of downtime before Thursday’s game against Arkansas at the Wells Fargo Arena. With a VICTORY, the band will stay in Des Moines until the next game scheduled for Saturday, March 18.
The women’s Hoops Band will depart from the State Farm Center at 10:30 AM and bus to South Bend, Indiana where they will check in to their hotel and immediately suit up to send off the team. They will load the bus again and make a very short trip to the campus of the University of Notre Dame to support the women at the Purcell Pavilion as they face Mississippi State for a play-in game. With a win, they will stay in South Bend to face Creighton on Friday, March 17th.
Safe travels to both bands and know that the Illini will be well represented in Iowa and Indiana. GO ILLINI!
