College Notes: UIS men's basketball made progress in loss

The University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars’ exhibition men’s basketball game against Illinois-Chicago finished better than it started.

The end result was a 72-59 loss Saturday to UIC, but UIS made progress. After trailing 33-19 at the half, the Stars bounced back and outscored the Flames 40-39 in the second half.

“UIC played a zone the whole night and we didn’t get to see much in our man-to-man offense, which we really worked on,” UIS coach Kevin Gamble said. “We didn’t play bad. We just didn’t make shots."

The team was featured in an November 20, 2009 article in the State Journal-Register.
