Illinois 81, Auburn 79: 'A great feeling'

"It was fun. I'm happy, excited," Mom said. "It's amazing that he did this on the Bulls' court."

Tracy Abrams said he regularly attended Bulls games as a youngster. The product of Mount Carmel High School on the South Side never imagined he'd have a performance like his exhibition Saturday against the Tigers.

"It's a dream come true," Abrams said as Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich walked past him in the hallway. "Growing up in Chicago, you hear about the Bulls and the United Center. It's a privilege. I thank God for the opportunity. It's a blessing."
