Eleven former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes on Wednesday and just one on Thursday in various NBA games. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from February 16 and 17.

Best of the Day:

Wednesday

  • Patrick Beverly (Marshall/Minnesota Timberwolves)- 29 minutes, 18 points, 6/9 FG, 2/3 3PT, 4/4 FT, 2 offensive rebounds, 6 total rebounds, an assist, a steal, a game-high 3 blocks, and +4 in a 124-104 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
