From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!
Five Wildcats are set to take the court on Thursday night. See who’s up for New Year’s Eve, and check back later to see how they did.
Arcidiacono and a couple of other teammates were out due to COVID-related precautions, Chicago head coach Billy Donovan said. The Bulls beat the Wizards, 133-130.
