Illini Sports Night special presentation of Illinois Women's Basketball.

by UI7 Newsroom Staff

Illini Sports Night had the privilege of having a live pre-game show to Illinois Women's Basketball game against Big Ten opponent Penn State. This is the first time Illini Sports Night has offered live coverage from State Farm Center.

The team has been planning this event for the past 3-weeks. On Sunday all the planning led to a 30-minute pregame show that led into B1G+ live coverage of the game.

The Illini Sports Night team consists of volunteers, as well as students from 3 separate classes in the College of Media journalism department. The show was a chance for students to get real-world experience of live television production. You can view the whole show on our Vimeo page here.
