  Centennial Coverage
With the Illinois Fighting Illini basketball team poised to spend yet another week at the top of the polls (this week likely to be unanimous unless Austin Bishop or some other sports-writer completely loses their mind) the media coverage has become overwhelming. This post is an attempt to hit some of the highlights.

As Illini Wonk said in this recap of the Minnesota game, Illinois fans should take comfort in the performances of Roger Powell and Deron Williams. The main-stream-media picked up on this point with the two hoopsters being the focus of most of the game reports. Adam Rittenberg of the Daily Herald writes an article headlined Illini's Williams in the groove.

Recaps of the game are also available from the Bloomington Pantagraph, the Decatur Herald & Review, the Peoria Journal-Star, the Quad-City Times, the Springfield State Journal-Register and the Tinley Daily Southtown.

Mark Tupper contributed an article on Lou Henson, a report on the Centennial festivities and a report on the alumni game.

Minnesota Star-Tribune sports-writer Jeff Shelman, a blogger who used to cover Illinois basketball for the Danville Commerical-News, had a recap of the game here that included heavy praise for the Illini from the Gophers. Here's the quotes
