Illini Women's Basketball 2021-2022

Is she related to the Irvin basketball family in Chicago?

It would appear so.

Westfield, IN

That was my first thought. Not a lot of college experience, although she appears to have done a terrific job at St X for the short time she was there. This team needs a recruiter more than anything else, which I assume is a role in which she will flourish, after 18 years dominating the CPD. Does her husband continue to coach the Mac Irvin Fire? Does he take one of the apparently now open men's assistant positions?

very interesting hire. Great background. On another note, I see that Terry has ended up at Purdue and my favorite Myles goes to Marquette. Kennedy was a great student and rep of IllinoisWBB

Her husband coaches the Mac Irvin Lady Fire.

Just saw that last month WBB added De’Myla Brown, an NJCAA D1 1st team All-American. With a couple of 4 star recruits and two quality transfers things may be looking up.

Doing some quick reading, it sounds like she could be a special player.

Lots of news about the men’s team. Anyone have any idea about how the women are doing as they try to deal with all of the newcomers, many of whom should see a lot of playing time? We have at least two transfers who saw significant playing time at their previous school, a D1 community college all-American and a 4 star recruit. Somewhere in the mix there should be some help.

Nice "fluff" piece on Fahey in recent News-Gazette. (see above) I get the Whitman/Fahey connection from STL., but some point it's time to show the door. 6-64 is MORE than embarrissing.

It's not the X's and O's it's the jimmies and joes, or in this case the susies and flos. We don't know if NF's defensive philosophy or her offensive sets work at the B1G level. And we may never find out. She's been a dismal failure as a recruiter. Nothing works if you don't have the players. This is year 5 and a major step forward is necessary for her to see year 6 IMO. I hope it works out but it doesn't look good.
