Coach Bruce Weber and Rod Cardinal met the press at Ubben & Corzine Basketball Complex this afternoon. They talked about the August 6th Illini basketball reunion. Cardinal also brimmed with joy about his son Brian, who won an NBA Championship ring last night.
Weber addressed the absence of freshman Ibrahima Djimde, who’s not on campus yet. Also absent from the Ubben was freshman Devin Langford.
Nnanna Egwu is on campus, is enrolled and was at the Ubben. But he fears he might not be able to stick with his Greek & Roman mythology class, which requires 200 pages of reading per week. Summer sessions are brutal that way.
Julie Pioletti, who runs the basketball office, posed with a copy of her new cookbook.
