5 years ago (2010): Sean Johnson and Jordan Zimmer each tossed in four 3-pointers and Doug Sexauer was his usual force in the lane as No. 17-ranked Illinois Wesleyan moved into a first-place tie with Carthage in the CCIW standings at 5-1.
15 years ago (2000): Illinois State women’s tennis player Zana Friganovic saw her junior season end prematurely when results of an MRI showed she suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee. Friganovic teamed up with Flora Karsai and captured the No. 1 doubles title at last year’s MVC individual championships.
25 years ago (1990): May Sanders of Lincoln has added an offensive dimension to her game, and the Millikin University senior is enjoying her best season as a result. The 6-foot Sanders was named player of the week in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin.
50 years ago (1965): Mark Bardwell played no small part in Trinity High School's 78-68 victory over St. Paul of Odell with 10 baskets and three from the gratis line. The two teams play again this week in the Peoria diocese tourney at St. Bede.
