Self's Return & Maui Strong Fundraiser
Former Illinois Head Coach Bill Self brings his #1 preseason Kansas Jayhawks to the State Farm Center on Sunday evening for an exhibition to benefit the Maui Strong Fund, a benefit for those that lost so much in the Maui wildfires this past summer. If you would like to donate the link can be found here.
The #25 Illini and the #1 Jayhawks met in a secret scrimmage a year ago that saw the Illini come away with a win, but this will look much different. It’s unclear how they will set this game up, as a true exhibition game with 20-minute halves or will they break it into segments as they have done in prior scrimmages. Regardless, both teams are looking to find out more about their squads.
Tickets for this event are still available, starting at just $40, and can be purchased online at FightingIllini.com.
