2001: Illinois State flexed its rebounding muscle for a 64-52 victory over Northern Iowa before a season-high crowd of 9,123 at Redbird Arena. Freshman Cedric Knight grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds for the Redbirds and another freshman, Jason Hammock, chipped in with eight points in 15 minutes.
1991: Saybrook's Dave Feese took 15th place in the Silver Crown race at Phoenix International Raceway in an event marred by the death of another driver. Danny Milburn of Indianapolis was killed when his car slammed into the first-turn wall. Jeff Gordon of Pittsboro, Ind., won the 50-lap race.
1981: Illinois State turned back Cleveland State 74-57. McKay Smith's defense, the shooting and rebounding of Anthony Jones, Hank Cornley and Rick Lamb, and the outshooting of Dwayne Tyus enabled Bob Donewald to gain his 50th coaching victory in less than three seasons as a head man.
1956: University High's oft-thwarted Pioneers finally savored the sweets of success, summoning a last-period scoring surge to sweep past Trinity, 48-45. Carroll Anderson tipped in the equalizer at 4:35 and Roy Nichols, who netted 18 points, laid in the one that shoved the Pioneers in front to stay.
