  • Hardwood History

      Bruce Weber's Fighting Illini spent 15 weeks of the regular season as the #1 ranked team in the nation.  After going 32-1 they were both the Big Ten regular season champions and the Big Ten Tournament champions.  Led by a trio of stars in Dee Brown, Luther Head and Deron Williams, Illinois entered the NCAA Tournament as the #1 seed in the Chicago Region. 

      Illinois breezed through Fairleigh Dickinson, Nevada, and Milwaukee to get to the Elite 8.  Waiting for them was #3 seed Arizona.  Down 15 with 4 minutes to play and 9 under 1:25 Illinois miraculously tied the game on a Deron Williams 3 that sent the game into OT where they snuck out a 90-89 win and Final Four berth. 

      The Fighting Illini beat Louisville before falling to North Carolina 75-70 in the National Championship.  

      "We had been such a good offensive team all year, and that's all people talked about.  But when you really study us, we were a great defensive team but we never got the credit because we scored so many points."

Great shorts!


Dee brown. Legend.

A true classic

These are as authentic as you can get. High quality and exactly the same as what I saw on U of I back in 2004-2005. Such a special team and they did this design Justice.

FYI I’m 6’2 and 220lbs and I ordered a L. Didn’t fit right so went through the exchange process and it was as easy as I’ve ever had. Very satisfied with how quick they shipped out the XL’s I wanted. Highly recommend if you’re looking for authentic college basketball throw back shorts. Will order again.

Great throwback college basketball shorts

The shorts are amazing. Hard to find throwback college basketball shorts at a reasonable price. Fast delivery and good selection.
