Illinois has a rich and storied history of basketball from the grade school levels all the way to the professional ranks. One of our major goals is to honor and preserve the great history of Illinois basketball through the construction of our musem in Pontiac. If you have any records, histories, memorabilia, or stories that you would like to share please contact us.
