UIS men's basketball team routs MacMurray

The University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars didn’t score more than 100 points in a men’s basketball game last season.

The Stars lit up the scoreboard in this season’s opener for a 115-60 non-conference victory over the MacMurray Highlanders on Tuesday at The Recreation and Athletic Center.

“I liked our pace of the game,” UIS coach Kevin Gamble said. “What I didn’t like was we didn’t play hard the entire game. We took plays off. You can’t do that against good teams.”

The team was featured in an November 25, 2009 article in the State Journal-Register.
