We want to thank the many Redbird fans who helped make the attendance at our recent game with Indiana State the second-largest crowd to watch an Illinois State home women's basketball game in history.
While we weren't satisfied with the final score of the game, the attendance of 3,581 certainly showed the continuing growth of interest and support for women's college basketball. The coverage in The Pantagraph is another big factor in helping Illinois State women's basketball reach new levels of success.
Thank you to all the fans who came out to "Back the 'Birds!"
The writer is head women's basketball coach, Illinois State University.
