We are all still basking in the glow of another basketball champion as the Chicago Sky won the WNBA title over Phoenix. Do You Know what may have been very significant about this game in terms Illinois' basketball legacy?
The Chicago vs Phoenix game was played in Chicago at WinTrust Arena before a capacity crowd. Across town, the Chicago Bears were hosting the Green Bay Packers in an NFL rivalry game. This simply adds to the fact that Illinois is a strong basketball state and Chicago is a strong basketball town.
