Bill Self, Anthony Grant and Danny Manning the coaching staff doing the selecting.

A big honor for Ayo, congrats!

Wow. Lots of outstanding players did not make this roster. This is quite an accomplishment!

I believe that Dee Brown and Deron Williams were the last Illini players to make this team, iirc. They ended up having pretty good college careers.

He and Jalen Coleman-Lands were invited but both were cut IIRC.

Not only did he make it, but he and Dee were the starting backcourt.

Dee set the scoring record with 47 points in a game.

I knew everyone down here could score, so I thought coaches would be looking for someone who could play defense and play other positions, Dosunmu said. I picked my man up full court.
This makes me very happy.
