Uof I’s first year Coach Jolette Law 

Yesterday, my daughter and I went to see the University of Illinois Women’s Basketball team with their new coach Jolette Law.  They were playing the Salukis of Southern Illinois.

Things were a bit shaky at first for both teams with no points scored almost into the the two minute mark.  The Salukis got off to a 8-3 and 11-5 lead.  But that’s when the Illini took charge and went on a 20-2 run and never looked back.  The Salukis did play respectable in the second half but the writing was on the wall.  Final score:  Illinois 63 Southern Illinois 53

Jenna Smith dominated with 32 points and 10 rebounds

No doubt who the player of the game was.  Jenna Smith, last week’s Big Ten Player of the Week, has a good chance of keeping that title.  She dominated the game with 32 of the Illini’s 63 points with 10 boards.
